Become a Heritage Volunteer

Hazel Littlejohn, our Heritage Volunteers Co-ordinator, has quite a long and varied list of organisations that are anxious for help in roles ranging from front of house to guiding, research, conservation, and so on.  Training where appropriate is given.  For detailed information on what is available, Hazel can be reached on 01689 820658 or email hazel.littlejohn@yahoo.com.  She is to be found in person at our monthly meetings in the Civic centre, Bromley, and will be delighted to give you a copy of her list of organisations looking for volunteers and to discuss what might appeal to you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Volunteers are trained by professional conservators, advisors or curators.
All organisations, which are based in London and parts of the South East, show great flexibility with the hours that volunteers can offer.
