VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES NOW CLOSED.

As part of this project we recruited volunteers to form a research group. Volunteers enjoyed a series of lectures and research trips whilst learning skills in conducting and recording interviews. Our group of amazing volunteers were passionate about local heritage, had some free time and were keen to meet new people. 

Below are the dates for the workshops, lectures and field trips that were hosted for volunteers as part of the project. Volunteers also sourced many of the photos within the archive and conducted the majority of the 50 interviews collected by this project.

Check out the blogs to see some of the activities that happened along the way.
