At the Fairlynch Museum in Budleigh Salterton, we can't wait to re-open on 24th June! We are even making plans to extend our opening hours - but to do this, we do need additional volunteers.

Could that be you?

Are you over 18 and looking for a volunteering opportunity? We can offer interesting work experience for you over the summer months! Training provided in post. Contact for more details.

As a volunteer you will become an important part of the Museum, enhancing the experience of our visitors. We are looking to build a bigger team of volunteers to help share our stories with museum visitors and enable us to increase our opening. hours. 

You don't need experience, you just need to be enthusiastic, friendly and engaging.  You might chat to visitors about our displays - but also sense when people just want to explore uninterrupted.

Chair of the Museum, Trevor Waddington commented: 'Staycations this year due to Covid are expected to greatly increase the number of visitors to Budleigh Salterton.  This presents a golden opportunity to extend Fairlynch opening hours - but we do need additional stewards to be recruited.’

Please share with anyone you think may be interested.
