Registered Charity No. 278774

are proud of the help they have given and continue to give to
Lyme Regis Museum.
We act as a support group, giving financial and practical assistance and many of our members are volunteers at the museum in a wide range of roles.

We exist only to support the museum in every possible way, and to involve the public at large in this unique, vibrant,  something-for-everyone place of learning and activity.
Come and join us and become part of the Friends community.

Apart from helping out at the Museum in so many ways we also have a social side which features interesting talks, outings, and fun fund-raising events for adults and children. The degree of your involvement in any or all of these aspects of our work would be entirely up to you.
