Volunteers hold open day at museum

By Farnham Herald in Local People

GILBERT White and The Oates Collections opened their doors for free last Thursday for their annual volunteer open day.

We Love Our Friends and Volunteers is an annual event at which volunteers and supporters (pictured) of the museum, garden and Field Studies Centre get together, socialise and learn more about the heritage site.

It was held at the Gilbert White Field Studies Centre in Selborne.

In the morning there was an opportunity to chat to volunteers and staff and find out about a wide variety of different roles and projects.

From working in the garden, room stewarding, helping with events, costumed interpretation and working behind the scenes with collections, there is something to suit every interest.

In the afternoon, there were tours from the Field Studies Centre to the house and garden to learn about what goes on there.
