Lion Salt Works

A second call is going out for volunteers who could be part of the visitor experience at Weaver Hall Museum or soon-to-be-opened Lion Salt Works.

The Northwich attractions are looking for people who can spare some time to volunteer in roles both 'front of house' and 'behind the scenes'.

An informal drop-in event earlier last month proved a great success, with 22 people signing up as potential volunteers.

But more volunteering opportunities are available, and a second information event will take place at Weaver Hall Museum on Saturday, January 10, at 11am.

Anyone who may be able to help with special events, family activities, guided tours, gardening and research — among other functions — is welcome to come along to find out more.

Councillor Stuart Parker, Executive Member for Culture and Economy, said: "Our first volunteering information event was a great success and I would like to thank everyone who came along.

"In order to reach as many people as possible, we have scheduled a second information event for a Saturday for people who may be busy during the week. It is an opportunity for people to meet with members of staff and volunteers and to hear about exciting opportunities at both museums over a cup of tea."

"We would like to hear from people of all ages and from all backgrounds, regardless of how much time you might be able to spare. We can offer full training and a rewarding experience that is a great way to meet new people and learn new skills while helping to bring Northwich's rich history to life."

Anyone who would like to attend the volunteering meeting at is asked to email lorna.kernahan@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk by Friday, 9 January

Ed: "This looks like a wonderful opportunity to develop or use existing skills in promoting one of the major Heritage sites in West Cheshire, don't delay and send your email to Lorna to confirm your interest"

How could a council imagine this was a good idea?Thankfully, it remains a quiet by-way for walkers, cyclists...
