Spelthorne Archaeology and Local History Group
SALHG are the trustees of Spelthorne Museum. By becoming a member you can enjoy previews of museum exhibitions, social events and have the opportunity to help in the work of the museum.

During winter months there are talks on archaeological or social history items. A quarterly newsletter keeps members up to date.

Members of SALHG receive a quarterly magazine called 'The Museum' which contains museum news, forthcoming events and articles written by members.

Spelthorne Museum is divided into two rooms. The Elmsleigh Room is opened by Staines Library staff and has the history of Spelthorne from the Ice Age to Modern Times. To provide visitors with something different there are two display areas which are changed frequently.

Window on Spelthorne
Is a small display case near the Fire Exit and changes roughly every month.

Big Blue Board
The second area in the Elmsleigh Room to have a varying subject is a display board (sadly called 'The Big Blue Board', because that is what it is!).

Temporary Exhibition Area
The second of Spelthorne Museum's two rooms is the Thames Room. This is opened when volunteers are on duty and as well as further displays and the Museum Shop it has the Temporary Exhibition area. The Museum aims to have two temporary exhibitions a year. The Thames Room is open Wednesdays and Fridays 2pm - 4pm and Saturdays 1:30pm - 4:30pm (First Saturday of the month only is early opening at 11 am)

Spelthorne Museum needs Volunteers
Can you spare 2-3 hours a month? Interested in the Spelthorne history? Like the Romans? Happy to talk with people? Over 18? Then maybe you would enjoy being one of our Volunteers. No experience necessary training is given.

Volunteers receive a monthly newletter called 'Treasures' to keep them up-to-date with what is happening at the museum and locally.

Our wonderful Volunteers won the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, in June 2016, for up to 36 years of dedication to the Spelthorne Museum. All are very proud of that accolade.

Won't you join us?
