Our Garden Tea Room needs the help of a few more local people, to join forces with the friendly team who currently volunteer there.

It's not so much about the pouring out of tea, or even the dishing up of tasty treats, but more about giving a warm welcome to all - served up with a dash of genuine hospitality.

The tearoom is surrounded by a delightful, apple-tree filled, 'secret' garden - an oasis of green calm, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the lively market town of Wimborne.

The museum currently represents all kinds of aspects of life in East Dorset through the ages - for local people, about local people. The museum is also planning an exciting new project to revitalise, refurbish and improve access to its exhibitions and displays, subject to an application to the Heritage Lottery Fund. So, it is the perfect time to get involved.

Come and be a part of something wonderful. Volunteer at the museum.
