  • Mission statement

    The Museum is a community hub exhibiting objects connected to the town and it's people. It aims to inspire and provide opportunities for other individuals and organisations like schools and local art/history groups by providing them with temporary exhibition spaces to display their work. The Museum Research Group produces an in house exhibition each year. We aim to be accessible as possible.
    We aim to meet the needs of our local community and this has included the provision of a Dementia Friendship Group which is open to anyone in the area living with dementia.
    We also provide an education service; offering formal workshops for primary, secondary and higher education groups. We also provide informal learning opportunities for the public including family holiday activities as well as talks, tour and additional events.
    We encourage community participation and volunteers are involved in all aspects of the Museum's operations ranging from research for exhibitions to fundraising and working with the Museum's collections. Work placements are offered.
    The Museum also has a membership scheme, providing another way for the community to support us.
    The Museum aims to maintain links within the community and works closely with other local organisations like the annual Food and Drink Festival committee and annual Jazz Festival to enhance opportunities and tourism within the town.
