Penny and Katherine Briggs were amongst those who answered the plea from Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre (CAHC) for Heritage Volunteers.

The new recruits will now receive specialist training to help them get hands on with local history and displaying artefacts, as well as being part of community heritage projects.

The CAHC, which is run as a not-for-profit community organisation, was created back in 2011 with a Big Lottery Grant and since then has gone from strength to strength raising the profile of Caistor’s rich history.

Chairman Roy Schofield MBE said: “We are delighted when new volunteers join us, it’s a win-win situation for the volunteers, Caistor and the centre.”

As well as heritage volunteers, the Centre is currently recruiting for a variety of other volunteer positions, including fundraising, community hub and Heritage Directors, as well as volunteers who are interested in getting involved in community arts projects.

“ We would like to hear from anyone who thinks they may have the skills and time to help,” added Mr Schofield.
