Heritage volunteering

Our Heritage Group is entirely run by enthusiastic volunteers who:

  • share a love of local history with like-minded individuals
  • plan and prepare new exhibitions
  • develop digital skills in cataloguing objects and photographs
  • sharpen their research skills
  • explore local Records Offices and Workington Library’s newspaper collection on microfilm for research purposes
  • conserve artefacts
  • answer online queries on local and family history
  • develop interviewing and oral history skills
  • work on new ways to raise the profile of local history in Cockermouth

Time commitment: monthly meetings and additional time to work on any of the above activities.

Supported by Heritage Group leaders.
