A history learning programme run by Weston Museum is expanding and needs more volunteers.

The museum, in Burlington Street, is closed for a £1million refurbishment until next year.

In the meantime, volunteers are taking handling boxes to primary schools and community groups to inspire a love of history.

The project is now expanding to provide sessions for home educators.

Volunteers will receive training and historical information, and the role can be fit around other commitments.

For more information, email museum@wsm-tc.gov.uk or call 01934 621028.
