Hands on Heritage: Volunteer Sessions

About Hands on Heritage: Volunteer Sessions

Over the course of 4 weeks you will be given the opportunity to learn about our collections and to try a variety of tasks, working on items from the East Renfrewshire Heritage collection, supported by the Local Studies Librarian.

Ideal for those wanting to gain a bit of experience in heritage or those who just enjoy learning about and exploring local history.

You will be working in a group so you can meet new people while you learn new skills.
No previous experience required but enthusiasm essential!
Tea and coffee provided.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Hands on Heritage: Volunteer Sessions are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
