Exciting volunteering opportunities in a unique location! 4

Bottisham Airfield Museum relies on volunteers to run and we are currently looking to significantly expand our volunteer team.

We welcome people with a wide range of skills in order to ensure that Bottisham develops as an unparalleled tribute to the men and women who served at Bottisham, and a great place to visit.

You will become part of a caring community of people who share a passion for the site’s history and its future. One only has to look at our reviews on TripAdvisor to see the high regard our volunteers are held in.

Volunteers are the life blood of the museum and without them it would not function. We have vacancies in our visitor services, cafe, shop, maintenance and restoration teams.

If you would like to join us, please send an email to info@bottishamairfieldmuseum.org.uk and we can arrange a tour of the site.

Where possible we do provide training for our volunteers and we can do actively participate in supporting people through the Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme.

    I am a member of RAG Lakenheath and looking to volunteer in the community. I am interested in Bottisham Airfield due to the history between the United States Air Force & the Royal Air Force. Can you please provide information what volunteer work is needed?

      Good to hear from you. We have a wide of variety of volunteer work available. We are currently restoring the original 1940’s buildings so there are plenty of maintenance/DIY tasks such as painting. We also need people to meet and greet visitors, catalogue exhibits on computer spreadsheets, help organise displays, assist with marketing the museum etc. Most of our volunteer activities take place on Sundays. Please email me at jasonwebb@bottishamairfieldmuseum.org.uk or call on 07791 971799 for more details. Kind regards Jason.

    Hi, I’d be really interested in volunteering to help out at the airfield. I have 12 years experience in restoring classic cars, I have also been a welder and sheet metal worker as well as a retained fire fighter and police officer. I have a real keen interest in anything 2nd world war related and would love the oppotunity to be part of the team.
    Many thanks

      Hi Ray
      Thank you for your interest. It would be great for you to join us – your skills and interest will definitely be welcomed.
      The best way to get to know more about volunteering would be to pay us a visit. Would you be able to stop by one Sunday when we are open and have staff on site to show you around and tell you more about volunteering?
      Please email me at chriskenny@bottishamairfieldmuseum.org.uk so we can find a suitable date and time?
      Best regards
