Current volunteering opportunities
We are currently seeking help with the following tasks:
Heritage at Work at Llwyn Celyn - Volunteer weeks in 2016
Heritage at Work is an exciting feature of our project to save Llwyn Celyn. It will reveal and document the conservation and restoration work in progress. Our website will carry training and information videos, reports and photos and latest news about all the activities on site.
An important part of Heritage at Work are our volunteer weeks, when we will invite people from all over the country to participate in the work in progress. We are currently recruiting volunteers for June 6 – 10 and September 12 – 16. No previous experience of conservation or restoration is required, we will be supervised all week by excellent local craftspeople. So if you have time to spare and the willingness to get involved and learn some new skills then do get in contact via email - [email protected] - for more details. Enquiries from groups are welcome.

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.
