Neil Haverson, publicity officer at the museum, said someone was needed to lend a hand at one of the market town's most unique attractions, which was housed in the former Bridewell prison.

He said the space the tearoom occupied had a fascinating history.

Mr Haverson said: 'The museum is run solely by volunteers, and they need more people to help in the tearoom. It is based in the original exercise yard for prisoners in the police remand cells.' The tearoom offers hot and cold drinks and snacks including soup, sandwiches, home-made scones, cakes and ice creams.

Anyone interested in volunteering can call Janice Plunkett on 01953 603018 or email: janiceplunkett@tiscali.co.uk
