Archivist Opportunity - History of Alveley Pit
We have an opportunity for a volunteer archivist with Alveley Mining Heritage Group.
As a fledgling group we are starting the process from scratch so this is an exciting opportunity for anyone with the skills and a little time. We are open to a volunteer job share. We have been generously offered the Education Room for our meetings at the Severn Valley Country Park and are negotiating available space for display and storage. We are an enthusiastic and friendly group and welcome active involvement. Someone with an interest in the history of Alveley pit would be particularly welcome.
Do get in touch to discuss. We look forward to hearing from you!
