‘Working together to deliver exciting arts, heritage and natural history activities from a historic venue’
Dronfield Heritage Trust aims to maintain the Barn as the focal point for our community and in the future become the wider information point and hub for the district, promoting the protection and conservation of the area.
The Barn has recently moved it’s archive to the Dronfield Library and is at the start of creating a fully formed archive. We are at the beginning of this project and need your help.
Tasks will include repackaging and box listing. Volunteers will also need to match records with previous catalogues and improve location descriptions where necessary on an Excel spreadsheet. You will be working in a small but dedicated team.
The Archives team also carry out research for publications and exhibitions at the barn.
Volunteers will preferably be available for Tuesday mornings.
- Organised and flexible, with good IT skills, good knowledge of local history would be a bonus.
- Reasonable level of heavy lifting/fitness – not essential.
If this sounds like you please read the Archive Volunteer Role and contact Sam Reavey or for an application form.
