Volunteers meet at the Fort on Thursdays during the winter months to undertake a wide range of work to upgrade and improve the Fort’s fabric, build new exhibits, carry out research and care for the Fort’s artefacts.

Fort Management and Maintenance

A whole range of skills is required and we are always on the look out for volunteers who can assist us with the following:

  • Carpentry
  • Electrical installation and maintenance
  • Painting
  • Model Making
  • Graphic Design
  • Sign writing and the production of information panels

In addition we need volunteers with professional skills in:

  • Collection management and care (care of the Fort’s artefacts)
  • Research
  • Event management and supervision
  • ITC

Why not come and join us at Nothe Fort and put your skills to good use while enjoying the company of others. Email our Volunteer Liaison Officer to arrange a visit to discuss how you can help to save a national important scheduled monument.

Volunteers

Our team of evacuee experience volunteers act out the role of World War 2 teachers, shopkeepers, air raid wardens and housewives.
The reception and shop are managed by our Front of House Manager supported by volunteers. There are generally 5 volunteers on duty at any one time so there is always plenty of company and a great team spirit with everyone helping out.
