- producing a quarterly newsletter in collaboration with the Museum Manager
- sending out subscription reminders and new membership cards
- managing the membership database
- developing new events and activities for the Friends
- Free admission to the museum
- 10% discount in the shop (books and gifts)
- Access to a pass to visit other museums in Cumbria free of charge

Skills and qualities
This role would suit a team-player who is good with words and has basic computer skills (Microsoft Word and Excel). Volunteers are required to sign and commit to the museum’s safeguarding policy and code of conduct.
Dates and availability
This is a flexible volunteering opportunity. Volunteers are invited to give approximately one half-day a month (either 10am – 1pm or 1pm – 4pm). There is an opportunity for the role to grow should anyone be keen to develop new activities for the Friends.
About Senhouse Roman Museum
Dramatically sited on cliffs overlooking Solway Firth, this award-winning museum is next to a Roman fort that was probably founded in the first century AD and was rebuilt during the reign of the emperor Hadrian. Today, they welcome visitors to admire their significant collection, they host the Young Archaeologists Club, and they offer an exciting venue for school trips.
