Nothe Fort is now a major tourist attraction, with its museum, education programme and public events. We have a wide range of personalities from all walks of life who are very hands on, responsive and friendly. Not many people know about the small army of willing volunteers that offer many skills and a great deal of time to the day to day operations and on-going maintenance programme. However to maintain this attraction, we always need volunteers to operate in all areas of Fort.

This year we are hosting a joint open day with the newly formed Weymouth & Portland Heritage Group, a new community action group dedicated to promote our rich local heritage. Partners consist of Weymouth Museum, Portland Museum, D-Day Museum, The Churches Conservation Trust (including St Georges Church on Portland) Sandsfoot Castle and Friends of the Rodwell Trail. This gives potential volunteers a wide choice of options to become involved by playing a role in managing, protecting our local historic attractions. So there will be many different opportunities and roles of offer.

The Nothe Fort is a great place to spend time stimulate your mind and socialise with people from a diverse range of backgrounds. The Fort has a wide range of personalities from all walks of life who are very hands on, responsive and friendly. Fort Chairman Brian Martin said, “I am very proud of what we have achieved over the years and look forward to the continued development of the Fort. The sustainability of this local heritage attraction for future generations is in their hands”.

Nothe Fort roles include Reception, Gift Shop, Events Stewards, Electricians, Plumbers, ICT, Carpenters, Graphic Designers, Model Makers, Evacuee Experience, Collection Assistants, Interpretation Researchers and CAD (Computer Aided Design) Technician and Nothe Fort Artillery volunteers.
