Building guides help visitors to enjoy and learn more the Control Tower and play a central role in helping to ensure that visits are an educational and inspiring experience.
Building guides also help to protect the health and safety of visitors, and play a part in safeguarding the property and its collection.
You don’t need to be an expert in any of these topics before you start, we will provide background information and briefing materials and will help you to tell the story of the Control Tower and its setting in your own way.
The Control Tower project aims to educate, inform and entertain visitors regarding four main themes:
Volunteer research and museum assistants will extend our existing knowledge in each of these areas by researching existing sources and writing articles for publication on our website and in media such as leaflets, guidebooks, news media (for which we will need short and interesting pieces to help promote the control tower). They will also assist with curating displays and exhibitions, when possible under the supervision of a professional museum curator.
Working with a team of volunteers to run the cafe on daily basis and playing a key part in its continuing development.
This volunteer role combines helping to organise fundraising and promotional events at the Control Tower (these could include summer fetes, lectures and parties), helping to identify and develop new ideas for fundraising and writing applications to grant awarding bodies.
Help deliver a variety of events at Greenham Control Tower and the Common area. From preparation and setting up to running activities on the day, it’s all about offering our visitors fun and memorable experiences.
Helping to maintain the Control Tower and its grounds in a good condition.
These could include some or all of the following.
It is vital that the tower speaks with one (public) voice to ensure consistency of information. The role involves being part of this public face while ensuring that the tower is publicised in the right way to attract visitors.
They will also need to work within our media policy, and be willing to follow our other policies, including health and safety, equal opportunities, confidentiality and financial guidelines.
