Queenswood Country Park and Arboretum are looking for Oral History Volunteers to support the Queenswood Heritage Gateway Project.

As a Queenswood Oral History Volunteer, you will learn how to conduct oral history interviews with people who have a connection with Queenswood. These might be people who live nearby, people who have special memories of the park or people who’ve worked here; staff, conservationists, contractors and many more. You will be involved in recording their stories and creating a new oral history archive which will capture the unwritten history of the country park for generations to come. You will receive accredited training and on-going support from Julia Letts, an accredited trainer for the Oral History Society, and you will be part of a small, committed volunteer team who will help create the audio trail.
