Friends of Elmbridge Museum
As an independent group of people, the Friends support the running of Elmbridge Museum through membership and fund-raising events.
The Friends was launched at a public meeting held in Weybridge Library Hall in October 1998, attended by the Mayor of Elmbridge, the Museum Manager and Assistant Manager, and over 70 members of the public.
A Steering Committee had looked at a model constitution suggested by the British Association of Friends of Museums, and put a slightly amended version of this to the meeting. After some discussion the constitution was accepted and elections for a Committee were held.
The Friends aim to help the Museum by:
- publicising the Museum
- working with the Museum to raise interest in the history of the area
- undertaking voluntary work at the Museum
- arranging talks and events
- raising funds for special projects
As a member of the Friends you will:
- receive the "Friends" newsletter
- be able to attend private views and events held at the Museum
- be able to participate in local Museum projects
- broaden your knowledge of the district
New members are always welcome and needed if the Friends are to achieve their aims. Annual subscriptions are:
- Individuals - £5
- Families - £10
- Or a "Life membership" is available for £50 per person.
