The Cricket Derbyshire Foundation (Registered Charity No. 1155801) are looking to recruit volunteers to deliver its ‘Proud to be Derbyshire’ heritage project, delivered in partnership with the Heritage Lottery Fund.
The volunteers, reporting to the Heritage Project Manager, will help create a pictorial history celebrating the heritage of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and bring together over 1,500 images spanning over 140 years.
As well as a permanent archive at The 3aaa County Ground, the project will also produce an extensive online resource to be accessible to all.
The heritage project will recruit help from members, volunteers, community clubs, schools and other stakeholders. It is due to be completed by December 2015.
Cricket Derbyshire Director of Partnerships, Ryan Duckett said: “We want Members, supporters and members of the local community to play their part in this landmark heritage project.
“The project will inspire, safeguard and promote the heritage of Derbyshire County Cricket Club and its intrinsic links with people across the county.
“It will offer learning and volunteering opportunities as well as encouraging generations to share memories and better understand the heritage of cricket and the county.
“Volunteers will work with a heritage consultant to up-skill with relevant heritage skills to ensure all heritage project photographs are handled appropriately and recorded correctly.
“They will also in tandem help develop and launch the Cricket Derbyshire online pictorial archive and ensure sustainability of the archive and the project for years to come.
“We are looking for volunteers with a wide range of skills suitable for an extensive heritage project, with an interest in cricket desirable but not essential.”
