Come and help us tell the story of Roman Fort of Trimontium at our museum in Melrose. If you are passionate about history and like meeting new people, we’d love you to join our cohort.
The Trimontium Trust has run a museum about the Roman Fort site, Trimontium, for the past 30 years. Situated in Newstead, the site is notable as one of the largest Roman sites north of Hadrian’s Wall, which held a wealth of Roman artefacts and treasures, discovered over the last century. The old Roman Heritage Centre at The Ormiston is currently closed for renovation and will re-open in summer 2021, as part of a National Lottery funded development programme. When it re-opens, it will be a modern museum, with a greatly expanded number of displays and artefacts.
Museum volunteers help us welcome visitors to our temporary home at Abbey House in Melrose. They help us manage groups around the museum, answering questions, and telling the story of Trimontium. Volunteers also run the shop, selling souvenirs and membership. Our museum shifts are 11am-4pm and frequency of commitment is flexible. This role would be ideal for someone who wants experience in the Heritage sector, or just enjoys history and wants to share that enthusiasm with others.

Suitable for groups, One-off volunteering
Volunteers are encouraged to work in the gardens on Wednesdays and the last Saturday of the month (every Saturday from April 2020). Volunteering is coordinated by a designated board member, but volunteers work in the gardens under the direction of the gardener and/or the designated Board member on day-to-day gardening or manual labour tasks.
In 2019, garden volunteers contributed almost 2000 hours, which is nearly equivalent to a full-time employee. As the gardens and woodlands are developed, it is anticipated that even more volunteer time will be required to maintain and develop the Gardens.
To become one of our volunteers please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest or complete the VOLUNTEER FORM on the website. You can also follow us on our Facebook page for regular updates on the project.
