become a MEmBEr

Friends of Chard Museum was established in 2001.  The aim was to create a lively interest group with a passion for collecting and archiving local history for future generations. There are now over 140 members. In July 2020 theTrustees agreed to change the name Friend to Member. This decision was taken to comply with the new Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) status of the Museum.

Many Members provide support through practical help, fundraising and promoting interest in the Museum. The Museum would not survive without the much needed and ongoing support of the ‘friends, both in time and financially.
