We’re ready to start hunting down the source of the Wandle through time, but we need some extra help – might you be interested?
As part of our new Discovering the Source of the Wandle project, we are looking for volunteers to help us with a variety of activities, all around researching the source of the Wandle and how and why it has moved through time.
David, the Project Officer, is looking for volunteers for a variety of roles. If you are interested in the project, we will be able to find a role for you so please get in touch.
Activities could include the below:
- Desk-based archiving & researching: We need volunteers to help us research, archive and record a variety of materials from the local archive centres and libraries in Sutton and Croydon, including old photographs, maps, paintings and newspaper articles.
- Outdoor research: Walking the local landscape gathering photographic evidence of where the Wandle once flowed, collecting soil and rock samples for some simple chemical analysis.
- Interviewing: We want to capture stories from local residents about their personal experience with the Wandle.
If you are interested in helping with this project, please get in touch and we can find a role that suits you. Send you details to David Gill at firstname.lastname@example.org or via mobile at: 07468 529 312.
