Interested in Archives and based in Matlock?

Bright Ideas Nottingham has launched a new project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.

There are volunteering opportunities which require visiting the Derbyshire Record Office and researching and transcribing archival material. Helen Bates at Bright Ideas is ideally looking for volunteers who have some experience of looking at archival material as most will involve 18th/early 19th century records .

Helen is looking for people living within Matlock or a short distance away as they have some funding for volunteer travel expenses but not a huge amount. If you think this sounds like something you might be interested in please email Helen using the address –
