Lowestoft Maritime Museum will be holding an open afternoon on Wednesday.

The event is for anyone interested in volunteering at the museum in Sparrow's Nest Park and will be held on April 5 from 2pm to 4pm.

There is a wide range of volunteering opportunities at the museum when it re-opens for the season at Easter, including attendants to assist visitors, archiving and general administration duties, or working in the museum shop.

Jim Aguss, vice chairman of Lowestoft Maritime Museum, said: 'We encourage people to come along, see the museum and meet the team, who will be delighted to share their experiences of what's involved and how rewarding it is.

'Everyone at Lowestoft Maritime Museum is a volunteer and we're really keen to welcome new members to work with us to preserve Lowestoft's rich maritime heritage.'
