Support Us


The Wick Society welcomes new Members and has an open policy on membership and it is hoped that those joining the Wick Society will at some point be prepared to offer support, time and expertise to continue its work. All work is on a voluntary basis.

Museum Section members are responsible for the thousands of artefacts that make the Museum unique. They plan the displays, and act as informative guides when the Museum is open to visitors.  At all times, and particularly in the closed season, from November to April, members carry out necessary repairs, cataloguing and the many and varied tasks that are required to keep the buildings and exhibits in good condition.

Boat Section members give their time and expertise to restore, maintain and crew the collection of boats that are in Wick Society’s ownership. They also maintain the historic Old Herring Mart and the former Lifeboat Shed.

The Johnston Collection Section concentrates on the preservation, digitisation and reproduction tasks that unlock the potential of this incredible resource of historical images.  They prepare Exhibitions and other events to make the Collection available to the public. (
