A museum that will remain shut until at least the end of August is urging residents to help out once it reopens its doors.
Prickwillow Engine Museum made the decision to stay closed as it is fully reliant on volunteers, with most of them deemed as potentially vulnerable to contracting the coronavirus.
Roles such as working on reception and in the kitchen are available, as well as offering a few hours a month.
The decision comes after the government gave the go-ahead for museums and galleries in England to reopen from Saturday, July 4.
A museum spokesperson said: “Unfortunately, the Prickwillow Engine Museum will remain closed until at least the end of August 2020 and will continue to review the situation.

“If you are interested and able to fulfil essential volunteer roles, supplementing the very few at present, or would like to help for a few hours a month in future, please email on email@example.com or telephone 01353 720737 for more information.”
A decision to go ahead with the museum’s ploughing festival in October will be reviewed towards the end of this month.
