Friends of the Museum
The ‘Friends of Hall School Museum’ group was established in 2011. Together with the Honorary Curator, Phil Robson, the ‘Friends’ now take care of the Museum and all aspects of it’s planning and development.
Many different kinds of people might be interested in becoming a Friend. For example:
- Former staff or pupils of the school.
- Parents whose children went to the school
- Hall and district community members interested in heritage conservation
- People with an interest in the history of education
- Those interested in local or family history.
Not all ‘Friends’ are actively involved in the various activities associated with the Museum, but their membership is still highly valued. For those willing and able to become directly involved they can of course choose when, and what sort of tasks to help with. Tasks include:
- Collection conservation
- Collection documentation
- Exhibition preparation
- Maintaining public access
- Publicity and promotion
- Volunteer Guides
Some 'Friends' may be able to help with some of these tasks. The 'Friends' as a group can give support to the volunteer workers, by taking an interest in their activities and promoting the interests of the Museum in other forums. The 'Friends' are a key reference group when future plans and directions are contemplated.
