Getting Involved

Members with skills, interests, time and enthusiasm or any combination of these are always appreciated as leaders of events and programmes, in supporting roles, or to give their ideas and advice. Please do volunteer, there are plenty of other areas in which you might be able to strengthen our team.
Many members choose to become Heritage Wardens or to help in the Washburn Heritage Centre tearoom which is open at weekends and managed in-house by volunteers.

Who do I contact?

Our Heritage Centre Co-ordinator, Michelle Metcalfe, can be contacted at the Heritage Centre by telephone, e-mail or our contact form, and she will take your booking for events or direct your enquiry to the relevant person.
