Volunteer Role

Our staff and volunteers are integral to the success of the village.

• Meeting and greeting visitors at our Edwardian worker’s cottage.
• Meeting and greeting visitors at Port Sunlight Museum
• Helping out at special events, eg lectures, village trails, shows and road races.
• Carrying out historical and collections-based research.
• Caring for our collections.
• Leading learning sessions with schools and other visitors
• Surveying our buildings
• Helping to maintain our bedding displays

Our commitment to supporting and developing our volunteers is outlined in our Volunteer agreement form.
