Keeping busy behind the scenes
Here at Gloucestershire Archives we’re involved in lots of activities to gather, keep and share the documented heritage of Gloucestershire and South Gloucestershire. We’re also leading joint activities to make sure this keeps on happening, like the £2.6M For the Record project we’re currently developing.
While some of our work is plain to see there’s a lot that goes on in the background, especially when it comes to dealing with collections. So we thought it’d be good to share more about what we’ve been up to. With this in mind a few folk from our Collections team spoke with Pete Wilson of Radio Gloucestershire. The interviews were broadcast throughout his shows on 18th and 25th January and you can listen to them via the links below. They’ll be available until 15th and 22nd February respectively. Amongst other things, the team mention the key role of volunteers and partner organisations. They highlight this in the round-up at the end of the second programme.
I hope you find their enthusiasm inspiring. I certainly did!
