Get Involved – Our Volunteers
So there are many ways for people who would love to give their time for a worthwhile cause that
- Sheds light on the lives of people in the past
- Allows visitors of all ages to discover what made Shaftesbury and the surrounding villages what they are today
- Teaches local school children how to observe and value their history in ways that mean something to them
- Enables adults to develop new skills and feel more a part of the town and its surrounding area.
If you have specific skills, would like to develop some new ones, want to enhance your job prospects by engaging in activities that lead you to new career possibilities, or simply want to meet people and make new friends.
All you have to do is:
