Thanks from a volunteer

Hi, my name is Tom and I’ve been volunteering at Congleton Museum for the past fortnight to gain some experience before I start my Masters degree in Public History this September. During my time at the museum, I have learnt a lot about how museums operate through the tasks I have been assigned, such as recording newly acquired items and updating the collections database. I have also benefited from conversations with the museum chair and collections manager, Ian Doughty and the education officer, Jean Westbrook. Furthermore, the staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at the museum.
