Friends support Pendon through membership donations and with their encouragement and interest
We aim to help people to learn about 1930s rural life in an enjoyable way. Because we do this through models we also help people to learn more about modelling and to be inspired by the achievements of our own modellers.
Maintaining and developing the museum takes considerable time (almost all of it by volunteers) and expense. Friends make a big contribution to the funding of this endeavour and also, through their enthusiasm, support our modellers, guides and other staff in what we are doing.
Its a two-way street
In return Friends enjoy a growing range of benefits that include:
- unlimited complimentary access to the museum during normal opening days
- exclusive publications including Pendon Paper and a number of Friends Events
- web-based resources exclusive to Friends. Details in The Friends Place.
- discounts on purchases from the museum shop and the webshop.
Friends commit to an annual donation of at least £17.00 per year. That's it.
To join the Friends of Pendon please go to Join the Friends and complete a membership form. Alternatively call the museum office on a weekday morning.
