Jolly volunteers at the museum
March 31 2016.

On Friday March 18 Rye Museum held a volunteers’ evening at their East Street venue with wine and nibbles, writes Ray Prewer. Volunteering at the museum can be lonely if you are on the desk, so this was a thank you. It gave people involved in the museum a chance to meet old friends and make new ones. Rye Museum always needs more volunteers. If you are interested please contact them by email at info@ryemuseum.co.uk. Photo: Ray Prewer
