VG&M Volunteers

We enjoy volunteering at the V.G. and M.

The staff are so friendly, there's no 'us' and 'them'.

The building itself is a real star attraction

And showing it off gives great satisfaction.

With temporary exhibits and permanent displays, 

The Museum and Gallery please in so many ways.

There are paintings by Audubon, Turner and Freud;

Big drawings by Burne-Jones are hard to avoid.

Sculpture by Frampton, by Murphy and Rice

And some say the display of false teeth is quite nice.

There is no space to mention more, which is a pity,

But we're proud to show visitors our jewel in the city.

(Martin Strauss VG&M Volunteer)
