Projects

The Museum always has several projects in hand. Two important projects at the beginning of 2022 are:

  • The copying of the nationally important set of hundreds of glass slides from the Singer foundry. Volunteers are carefully inspecting and cleaning the images, which are then scanned and stored electronically. A selection of the images are included in the Museum’s on-line Collection Catalogue.

  • Volunteers are extracting interesting items from over the years from the many copies of local newspapers in the Museum, in particular the Somerset Standard. These extracts are included in the on-line Collection Catalogue. New Volunteers to assist with this work would still be welcome.
