We are a completely independent charity that is entirely run by volunteers. If you are interested in helping out in any capacity then please drop us a line via the website. Alternatively, feel free to drop in one weekend for a chat. All you need is enthusiasm and a bit of spare time!

Whether you see yourself helping out in the café, getting mucky underground, discovering your inner curator in the museum, or mixing it up with a bit of everything, there’s lots to get involved with.

Many hands make light work, as they say, so the more help we have the easier it is for every one, it doesn’t matter if you can only spare a bit of time each week.

At the weekends we are focussed on running mine tours and the museum, although the café is open every day so we always need help with that. In the week we often have group or school visits to get involved with, there’s a maintenance day for the mine.
