Young volunteer help at The Devil’s Porridge Museum

This weekend we had lots of help from our young volunteers.

14 year old Andy helped sort and organise a recent donation of Dumfries and Galloway Family History Society journals in the morning.  He sorted them by date and volume, put them in a folder in our archive and typed up a list of contents.  They are now available for any interested researcher to use.  These magazines belonged to a gentleman who has sadly now passed away and were donated in his memory by his sister.

In the afternoon, Russell assisted Judith in the object store.  He has been volunteering at the museum for several months now but had taken a break for his exams.  Now he is back and he helped tidy the object store and wrap objects in acid free for storage.


Another young prospective volunteer came in to the museum the other day to inquire about volunteering and assisting with catering.  Another has expressed an interest in helping in the garden.  We always welcome volunteers and are very grateful to them for their help – they are integral part of everything the museum does and can be found everywhere from Front of House to behind the scenes.
