The trustees of a museum in Ramsey have been recognised for their work in supporting volunteers.

Ramsey Rural Museum was evaluated by the Huntingdonshire Volunteer Centre to observe the work that takes place with volunteers.

Specifically, the centre observed how the museum audited its systems, how it supports volunteers and how they are managed.

And the centre was impressed enough to award the museum its 5 Star Focus Award.

The award was handed to Terry Heslin chairman of Ramsey Rural Museum, and Mike Brooks, museum volunteer co-ordinator, last week.

The museum, off Wood Lane, is currently closed for winter but is scheduled to re-open again on Saturday, March 26.

New volunteers are always welcome. If anyone would like to get involved, contact the museum on 01487 815715 or e-mail
