Information on how we are run, and how we comply with our charitable status will appear here.

As a charitable organisation we need to comply with the reporting requirements of the Charities Commission, and as an accredited Museum, we need to comply with the Spectrum standards. ( Spectrum Museum Standards )

Accreditation is necessary to enable us to seek grants when needed to further our activities, and is subject to periodic review which includes a review of our policies.

Note as our turnover is less than £25,000 we are only required to run very simplified accounts. This means items such as shop purchases and capital purchases are treated very simply, looking at one years accounts may not give a full picture of our financial position. eg. If we stock up the shop in one year but not the next, shop profitability appears to vary significantly year to year. Our base costs for Building Insurance and utilities is about £6000 a year, and we own the listed building.
