Anita Moffitt, Volunteer Coordinator
I have worked in Museums for... well, seems like forever! But it's actually from since I graduated in 1996.
I have worked in a number of departments (for TWAM) and other Museum services in the UK, but everything I have done has been around people, communities and increasing participation in the wonderful resource of 'Our Heritage'.
I love what I do and I hope that you will too. Come and join our team.

Why our Volunteers do what they do.
- some feedback from our volunteers past and present.
- I volunter because I enjoy meeting and talking to people, I also like to take an interest in local issues it also keeps me active and you do lots of differnet things.
-I give my free time, my knowledge of volunteering at the Dicovery Museum for many years enables me, hopefully, to anwer the many and varied questions thta visitors to the Museum ask.
-I get the satisfaction that visitors to the Museum always show their gratitude that you have taken the time and thank you for the help that you have taken the time and thank you for the help that you have give them. I also volunteerin the Mediateque, that is all about films solely made in Briton, the public are free to use this facility, and other volunteers show them how to use it.
-I have volunteered at most of the Museums over the years and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
-For the pat year or so I have been part of the Alternative Management Group, sometimes being part of discussions, and putting forward ideas tht might better the overall day-to-day running of the Museum.
