Supporting our Work

How you can support the museum, and get involved in its activities.

There are 2 options:


1 Join Crediton Area History and Museum Society. (CAHMS)

The membership fee is £15 per annum. Membership entitles you to attend our programme of talks and events at a much reduced rate. See the items marked ‘CAHMS event’ in the What's On list.

The Volunteers page highlights the opportunities for practical involvement. Volunteers need to be CAHMS members.

We do not charge for museum admission, and income from donations and sales falls short of essential costs. By becoming a Friend you can help financially to ensure the future of Crediton Museum and Heritage Centre. Individual Membership of the Friends costs £15 per annum.
