A MUSEUM in West Wight is appealing for help from people who want to learn all about the Isle of Wight's water history.

The Sunken Secrets museum at Fort Victoria needs volunteers to help maintain displays, welcome visitors, help school groups and work in the gift shop.

Volunteering positions are flexible and can be from a couple of hours to a whole day.

The museum, which is run by the Maritime Archaeology Trust, exhibits displays about maritime history, shipwrecks and the submerged prehistoric landscape. New for this year are stories of animals of war.

Anyone who wants to volunteer can contact Caroline Barrie-Smith on 023 8023 7300 or e-mail her on cbs@maritimearchaeologytrust.org.
