Do you have a passion for history and experience of undertaking original research? If you have around 10 hours a week to spare over the next couple of months, you might like to become one of our volunteer researchers, digging into the past and discovering the most intriguing treasures that will inspire visitors to Great St Mary’s.

Are you an expert organiser who could co-ordinate a team of over 30 volunteers? This crucial role would suit someone with administrative and management experience, who will be able to volunteer from home for up to 12 hours a week. You will make sure the volunteer team feels valued, supported and well-trained, as well as looking after the rota system.
The exciting interactive displays which we are currently designing for GSM will involve hundreds of images. We are looking for someone with a good eye, excellent administrative and IT skills and an interest in heritage to take charge of managing the image database.
Volunteering for 8 hours per week from a home computer, you will seek out suitable images, liaise with the owners in libraries, museums and galleries and ensure that we have the relevant permissions to reuse images from illuminated manuscripts, engravings and paintings.
All these volunteering roles would be great experience for anyone interested in heritage education or local history – please get in touch with Rosie if you have any questions!
Later in the project we will have more volunteering roles on offer, including public-facing roles such as giving tours, helping with educational sessions and leading art and craft activities. Please send us an email if this sort of role would appeal to you, and we can put you on the mailing list for the future.
