Llanwrtyd & District Heritage & Arts Centre

Volunteers Needed

The former Congregational Chapel

has become

The Llanwrtyd and District Heritage and Arts Centre.

The project, which has involved many local people, continues to need the support of the community.

Please can you help?

In February 2013, the Trustees were granted funding to purchase and transform the former Congregational Chapel into the Llanwrtyd & District Heritage and Arts Centre which opened in May 2016.

The Centre is providing visitors with a fascinating insight into our heritage which is being preserved for present and future generations.

However, we cannot rest on our laurels. We need to build on our early achievements through wider marketing of the Centre and the introduction of additional temporary exhibitions to maintain the interest of the public and local community.

We also have an area devoted to arts and crafts in which artists’ and crafters’ work can be displayed and demonstrations and workshops can be held. This facility needs to be developed and enlivened to provide interest for all ages.

Who can get involved?

Anyone who has an interest in working with the public, in meeting visitors, in local heritage and art or crafts – you don’t need to have previous experience – training can be arranged.

What would you be doing?

We especially need volunteers for any of the following:

  • to join a team of stewards to help in the manning of the Centre
  • to help with clerical and general administrative tasks
  • to assist in the promotion and marketing of the Centre

What else do we need help with?

We would particularly like to hear from anyone who would like to

  • participate in organising and managing temporary exhibitions, demonstrations and other events
  • organise school and other group visits
  • assist in building our digitised library of historical records

How big a commitment will this be?

Some volunteers may feel that they would like to make a regular commitment; others may wish to help out occasionally.

How could this benefit you?

  • Want a chance to meet new people, to talk to visitors from across the UK and overseas, to gain a sense of belonging?
  • An opportunity to work from home?
  • Are you a student? Volunteering could look good on your CV.

We would love to hear from you and welcome you to our LDHAC team. If you are at all interested and would like to know more, please phone or email the centre at 01591 610067, [email protected] and someone will be pleased to have a, no obligation what so ever, chat with you and show you round the Centre.
