Roar-some volunteers wanted

The Collection Museum in Lincoln is looking for local volunteers to help visitors have a “dino-mite” experience this summer.

The museum is looking for people to help with this summer’s Dinosaur Encounter – an exhibition direct from London’s Natural History Museum!

Paul Mason, visitor experience manager, said: “Whether you’re 16 and just starting out, looking to gain experience in the heritage sector, or just wanting to try something new – you may very well be able to help us.

“As an exhibition volunteer you are likely to be the first person many of our visitors will encounter, so we are looking for volunteers who are positive, have a sense of fun and want to help make their day as special as possible.

“The role will include greeting visitors to the exhibition in a warm and friendly manner, orientating them around the site and answering general enquiries. You’ll also monitor and control visitor numbers in the gallery space.

“So if you’re a friendly and enthusiastic person and would like to be a part of our fantastic team, please get in touch.”

Dinosaur Encounter runs from Saturday 13 July to Sunday 8 September, and is packed with spectacular dinosaur models and animatronics, fossil replicas and even a roaring, snorting T-Rex, visitors.

The volunteering role is ideal for people with excellent communication skills, who are interested in developing a sound knowledge of the day-to-day running of a public museum and gallery.

To apply, complete the application form available from the museum reception or online at

Help us maintain our standards of journalism

Readers across the region enjoy our news site but keeping our news up to date and authoritative, without charging readers to view the site is a challenge. Especially now with the Corona Virus measures affecting us all, as many clients have been severely affected and are naturally reducing their spend on advertisements. Given this lack of revenue stream we are calling on the generosity of our readers to help us fill that void and enable our journalists to continue delivering the news that you enjoy.

Unlike many other news sites, we don't have annoying pop ups or charge scandalous prices for events. We also produce printed magazines for each title and we make these freely available to read on line too, for your enjoyment. Often, people have asked why we don't make a charge for viewers to read these magazines and news stories but we feel that would adversely affect our readership/advertisers response rate. But with advertising revenues now severely affected we need your help. So, if you can support our news sites/magazines with either a small donation of even £1, or a subscription to our magazine, which costs just £27.55 per year, (inc p&P and mailed direct to your door) your generosity will help us weather the current storm and continue in our quest to deliver quality journalism.

We value your readership and your support, as this enables us to continue to provide our regular daily news updates. We've been established over 30 years, during which we've lost count of the numerous recessions and financial meltdowns, and we intend to weather the storms caused by Covid-19. So, every reader contribution, however big or small, is invaluable in helping us to get through this. Please click here to help support your favourite news site/magazine.
