We currently have 22 volunteers aged from 20 to 80 years old, both male and female. Most volunteer in our Centre for 2 to 3 hours a week during our opening times of 11am to 4pm, Wednesday to Sunday, all year round. They meet and greet the public, scan and index our archives, update our website and social media, plan and create exhibitions, help with fundraising, give talks to school and community groups. We are always looking for new friendly volunteers to come on board. Please call in or contact our volunteer co-ordinator, Lindy Rowley, on 01723 369361 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Two excellent interviews were conducted by Ed Asquith with Lindy Rowley & Peter Simpson about their involvement with the SMHC.
Many thanks go to our volunteer, Colin Coupland, who worked from 2009 - 2014 building this website by reading and summarizing many newspaper articles.
John Rushton MBE (1929-2003) was one of our founding members. Our well stocked archive & library, that he started, is named after him in his honour.
