Heritage at Risk
Lucy Routledge, the South Tyneside Historic Environment Officer, is looking for volunteers to join her team in carrying out surveys of Grade II Listed Buildings in South Tyneside. No experience is necessary and training and advice will be provided. There are some details on the attached English Heritage newsletter, as well as news of other heritage events in the area which may be of interest.
There are about 20 volunteers signed up so far but lots of buildings to cover, so all hands needed. The surveys can be carried out to suit the individual and it is all very flexible so people can decide how much they would like to take on.
It sounds a wonderful way of help conserve the heritage of the local area; get some hands-on training, and get to know people in the local area interested in South Tyneside’s history.
If interested then email or call Lucy:
