Volunteers Needed for Greenham Control Tower

Greenham Control Tower is open to the public. It is a visitor centre, and the aim is to run an attraction which appeals to a wide ranging audience.

The facility is run by Greenham Control Tower Limited, which is a not-for-profit company.

There are a series of volunteer opportunities such as building guides, volunteer coordinator, research and museum assistant, fundraising and event organiser, grounds and handy person and publicity and media assistant.

In addition, Greenham Control Tower Limited would welcome those with a personal connection to the base to get involved, either by sharing their stories or donating memorabilia.

For more information please email volunteers@greenhamtower.org.uk
