Help us keep our local Heritage alive!
We are looking for volunteers to help us run The Heritage Centre.
Activities include:
  • Staffing our reception
  • helping visitors to research family history
  • helping to set up displays and exhibitions
  • archiving and administration
  • fundraising. 
We are always looking for new people to help with the many aspects of running the centre. 
If you have a love of local history and heritage and can spare as little as a few hours a week, we would like to hear from you.
We welcome people of any background and ability.
If you are interested in joining the Heritage Centre as a volunteer, please contact our Secretary Jeff on 01453 521541, or email

We're on Facebook!

Wotton Heritage Centre has a facebook page so you can have rolling updates on the activities of the Historical Society, Museum and Heritage Centre.
