With a recent £2.1m investment in the building, facilities and displays, we have the basis of a regionally significant museum, and a locally significant community resource.

However, community and educational resources are hard to fund. As well as generating as much income as possible from our shop and venue hire, we need sponsorship from individuals and organisations to get some of our projects off the ground:

  • £25 will buy resources for a family fun craft event
  • £50 is the cost of a school visit to the museum
  • £100 buys a year’s worth of acid free tissue to keep our collections clean and safe
  • £300 would allow us to buy new shelving for our research room
  • £500 is the cost of cleaning an oil painting
  • £1,200 will fund a conservation report for our natural history collection
  • £3,000 would allow us to run an Arts Award course for young people
  • £10,000 would fund a major exhibition
