The Friends of The Trowbridge Museum was established in 1990 when Trowbridge Museum opened, with the aim of support the Museum by providing financial and volunteer assistance. We are a registered charity (no. 1054720) and submit an annual statement to the Charity Commission. We have an elected committee with a chairperson and elected officers and co-opted members. One of our main roles is to manage and staff the museum shop, using the profits to help fund purchases, conservation and events. Membership is open to anyone and costs £5 for an individual, £8 for a couple and £10 for an organisation. You can download a membership form here.
From the outset we have published pamphlets (known as the pink and yellow books) and booklets detailing various aspects of Trowbridge’s history that are available to purchase in the Museum shop.
As well as supporting the museum’s various endeavours we organise events for the membership including socials, days out and fundraising activities.
