a place with a future
Join our team of hosts
SUMMER SEASON 2020
Can you spare a few hours during the summer months? Looking for a new interest and connection to the people of Newtown and elsewhere? We are very keen to find new people to help us. Although this season is over, it would be a good time to check out what is involved so you could be ready for 2020.
Why not join our friendly team of hosts who help to keep the Museum open to the public. Lots of our visitors comment on the "very friendly and informative members of staff" but we would welcome more on the team. Without enough hosts, we will not be able to maintain our current opening hours.
Fancy giving it a try? Training will be given. Sign up now. We can arrange a visit to the Museum for you so we can tell you about the ways you can share in telling our story.
Do you have a craft you can demonstrate?
Why not share your craft with our visitors. It is a great opportunity to show your work as well as encouraging new people.
Come along and demonstrate on a Saturday next summer.
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Good reasons for joinING
We have established a group called NTM Friends and it would be great if you could sign up and become a supporter.
A modest annual or regular donation, of at least £20 from our members will help to sustain the Museum into the future secure in the knowledge that we have committed funds we can use to develop and keep the Textile Museum open.
As a NTM Friend you will receive our standard newsletter, plus special mailings of interest. We are also looking at ways of offering our Friends special activities and benefits one of which will be a discount to our evening talks or events currently being planned for the summer of 2019.
All donations are handled through the MCRA (Montgomeryshire Community Regeneration Association) - the registered charity for the Newtown Textile Museum. (Charity number: 1181252). All money comes direct to the Museum.
Please Gift Aid your donation if you are eligible.
