Maggie is a volunteer with the Schools Team, but has also taken on a number of other roles at the Museum of London. She started volunteering with the Museum in 2015 and now is an integral part of both the Schools volunteer team at London Wall, and the new Audience Engagement team in the Talking Point gallery. She regularly volunteers two or more days a week and is willing to give as much of her time as is needed to various projects across the Museum.
She has been involved with outreach handling sessions, has mentored and trained new volunteers, and is taking part in the Talking Points project which is helping to establish a new experimental gallery at the Museum. Maggie is knowledgeable, calm, enthusiastic, approachable and always open to a new challenge, which has stood her in good stead for her new volunteer role as part of the Audience Engagement team in the new Talking Point experimental gallery.
As a Schools volunteer, Maggie meets and greets school groups, directing them to the correct spaces and ensuring they get the most out of their day, with a friendly smile and lots of enthusiasm. Maggie has also trained to become an Amphitheatre specialist, conducting walks to and from the Amphitheatre to give school groups a comprehensive introduction to Roman London.
