Current volunteering opportunities
We are currently seeking help with the following tasks:
Heritage at Work at Llwyn Celyn - Volunteer weeks 2016 - Now Full
Thanks to all of you who have signed up to to Heritage at Work and join a merry band of volunteers keen to lend a hand on site. We are now full, but if you would like to be put on the reserve list, then please keep an eye on the website for updates on when we will be calling for more volunteers in 2017. In the meantime, there will be plenty of odd days and events, such as our hedge planting day on the 16 February 2016, so stay tuned for more information.
Volunteers for Crownhill Fort
We are recruiting volunteers to help with the following at Crownhill Hill:
• Conservation work including painting, site management and refurbishment of historic timber, stonework and weaponry. A group of volunteers meet every Tuesday between 10am and 2pm, volunteers can also be accommodated on other weekdays.
• Curatorial work in the museum displays. This includes cataloguing, collection management and stewarding.
• Help with open days, school visits and private tours. Volunteers greet our visitors as they arrive, interact with them in and around the site, curate exhibitions and run stalls with Landmark Trust merchandise
If you live locally and think you might be able to help please do get in touch via email.
Volunteers needed to help man Belmont Information Rooms
There is an information display about the history of Belmont and its past residents in the stables on the site (the house is not accessible). The stable opens from 2pm-5pm each Friday from 1 April to 31 October (providing volunteer cover is available).
We are very lucky to already have a small group of volunteers but we need more memebers of the team to help cover all Fridays throughout the season. Perhaps you are a student coming home for the summer and would like to add some volunteer hours to your CV which relate to History and Architecture or perhaps you are local and interested in sharing the story of Belmont with others. We would be delighted to have you in the team so do please email your interest via email.
PLEASE NOTE: Even if you have already registered with us to volunteer, you still need to apply for volunteer vacancies as they appear if you are interested. (We are a small team and cannot follow up with individuals about specific openings). If you have signed up for the monthly Volunteer Email this will alert you to any new volunteer positions posted on the website. Thank you.
Sign up for our Llywn Celyn Community History Project
It doesn’t matter whether you are an experienced researcher or a complete novice – all you need is an interest in history and in finding our more about your lovely valley. We’d love existing members of the local history societies to come along as we know there has been much great work done already. This is a chance to stitch it all together. What we all discover will help us decide how best to restore and present the Llwyn Celyn site.
