Guided Walks:
Heather Morrey and a team of volunteers run two programmes of guided walks each year. The subjects are diverse and often link with temporary exhibitions in the museum, anniversaries or national awareness days. Most walks take place in or around the town and are not strenuous. Surrounding rural areas are also occasionally covered. A charge of £3.00 is made per person. Due to the nature of the walks, they are unsuitable for dogs. The programmes are marketed through the Exploring East Sussex scheme of the county council as well as through the museum itself. Pre-booking is not generally required and participation is open to all. For details of the current programme see our museum calendar


Outings:
A variety of interesting educational day trips by coach are organized throughout the year by Michael & Bettina Openshaw. Destinations are generally within the south east due to time restraints and links with various items in the museum collection or collectors are regularly discovered. All profits assist the museum with its work.

Coffee Mornings:
Coffee mornings are on the first Thursday of every month at the Parkhurst Hall, Parkhurst Road from 10.00 am to 11.30 am, everyone is welcome and it is a good way of making friends and finding out about what the museum is and the people who are involved in running it, most of whom are volunteers. Tea/coffee is 60p which includes biscuits as well!

There are information leafelts abot the museum and the many social and educational events and activities on offer to members and non-members. If you would like to be more involved you can become a member of the museum's governing body, the Society of Bexhill Museums as well as offering to become a volunteer.

We also have regular tables offering cakes, second hand books and good quality bric-a-brac. There is also a raffle with a large selection of prizes. All proceeds go directly to helping the museum (a registered charity).

These events are organised by volunteers led by Mrs Christine O'Grady who would also be interested in receiving offers of help.


Lectures:
Afternoon lectures are held with a wide variety of subjects and formats. These are extremely popular with members and visitors alike. The current venue is the St Augustine’s Hall, Cooden Drive Bexhill. There are car parking facilities, a regular bus service and is close to Collington railway station. Entrance is £2 per person for members, £3 for visitors, which includes refreshments. A raffle is regularly held and the membership secretary is usually in attendance to receive membership renewals, new members and enquires.
