HERITAGE VOLUNTEERING WITH THE ARTS SOCIETY SHREWSBURY

 

There is a new opportunity to volunteer at the Shropshire Archives in Shrewsbury

We had a preliminary meeting in January and it was decided that we would have a training day at the Archives on Tuesday February 19th at 10.30 am

The project is to clean and re-store negatives and plates of old photographs which at the moment are not stored properly and it is something the Archives are very keen to get sorted.

The Archives will require funding to undertake this project which they hope they will be able to raise through the Friends of the Archives.    Since this is the case it is important that we can provide volunteers to work on this over a period of time.

If you feel that you would like to join in this project do please get in touch with me.   It would take place at the Archives in Castle Foregate, very handy for the Park and Ride bus stop at the station, on Tuesday mornings probably between 10 am and 12.00.   It would not be necessary to come every week and if we can find enough volunteers we can make a rota to suit everyone’s availability.

We are undertaking this project with the Arts Society Wrekin so we are hoping to have some volunteers from Wrekin as well

It is a friendly warm environment to work in and it is a great opportunity to help the Shropshire Archives to undertake valuable work.
