Stonehaven tollbooth museum

Winners announced for the Queen's Award for Voluntary Service

Prestigious honour awarded to Stonehaven volunteers

Volunteers running the Tolbooth Museum in Stonehaven have been awarded the Queen's Award for Voluntary Services. The award is the equivalent to the MBE and is the highest award that can be made to a voluntary group. 

The team of volunteers who work in partnership with Aberdeenshire Council protect the heritage of the Tolbooth Museum and old town clock tower. Since the volunteers took over, there has been a significant year-on-year rise in footfall to the museum, with around 24,000 visits by local people and visitors from the UK and overseas in 2017 and 2018.
