Abernethy, Aberargie and Dron News


The Museum of Abernethy has been awarded Accredited Status from the Museums, Libraries and Archives council (MLA). This award demonstrates that the museum has achieved clearly defined national standards. We are very proud of this achievement and acknowledge the hard work of all its volunteers to whom we include our thanks.

In order to maintain this high standard, we are looking to recruit more volunteers. If you think you can help in any way, please contact Rachel Cheer at tel: 850578 or e-mail rachelcheer@ hotmail.co.uk. We are confident there’s a wealth of untapped resources out there.

You will soon be receiving invitations to renew or become a new member of the museum. The membership form will give more details of the type of help we need.

We would remind our existing members to renew their membership for 2012 and encourage newcomers (and not so newcomers!) to join. Subscriptions help with the running costs of the museum and give you access to our social calendar. Volunteers who wish to continue or be included in the Duty Rota will be asked to specify which days they are available/unavailable. This is important to ensure correct allocation of days allowing as little disruption as possible.

WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT Help us ensure this remarkable resource on your doorstep continues. Museum opens Saturday 12th May at 1pm Volunteer evenings will be at 7pm on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th May.
