Tuesday 19th March 2019, Kellogg College, Oxford OX2 6PN
As local authorities’ resources are further constrained, many are looking to local communities and experts for support in preparing heritage-related materials.  Ranging from undertaking conservation area appraisals, surveying for Heritage at Risk registers, drawing up evidence to support local lists of assets, communities are stepping into these roles with considerable success.  This seminar is an opportunity to hear more about how this can be done and how to manage expectations.

Could you become one of our amazing box collectors?

We are currently looking for some fabulous volunteers to become box collectors in the Covingham, Old Town and Penhill areas. Our box collectors are an extremely important part of our volunteer team, as they collect the household boxes in their neighbourhoods, allowing us to generate more income from within the community. Not only does it make it more convenient for people to donate, it also allows those who are limited in mobility to still be able to collect using their household box.

If you think you are able to help or would like some more information on this role, then please give Alex a ring on 01793 816163 or drop an email to
