Teign Heritage is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to volunteer your time and skills at the Teign Heritage Centre, we would love to hear from you.

Teign Heritage belongs to the people of Teignmouth and Shaldon, all its staff work as volunteers and it is an attraction for visitors to the area. It is also used as a venue for various local clubs and activities.  During the school holidays we offer activities for children and during term time different schools arrange educational visits to the museum.

We are open from February half term and March to October on five days a week usually and thus we need people to help in a variety of ways to keep the museum open.  Various skills are needed including helping with the shop and visitors; organising family events and working with schools; administration and accounting; research; publicity and organising events.
