VOLUNTEERS are needed at Bewdley Museum to help bring the town’s history alive.
More than 40 volunteers currently help to keep the Museum running by manning the air raid shelter, supervising demonstrations, stewarding, administration work or cataloguing the collection.
One volunteer, Penny Smyth has spent four years welcoming school parties twice a week in her warden’s uniform at the air raid shelter.
The shelter was uncovered four years ago and made safe for the public to view.
Other volunteers can be seen showing visitors how clay pipes are made and painted, helping with exhibitions, gardening or running children’s activities.
