We are currently experiencing problems with the image viewer due to maintenance work on the website server.

On the Home page of the website you will see a number of photographs grouped together towards the top of the screen and a box at the bottom of the home screen called ‘Projects’.

You can open a Project by either clicking on the link in the projects box, by clicking on a photograph or by using this page.  This will take you to a group of records compiled by professionals which link together under one heading. This heading will explain what the project is about and what the museums and archive would like you to do to those records.

We aim to have a variety of projects available from all partners involved every month, but we ask that in the first few months you are patient, as not only are you new to this website but so are they. Each partner is different in their approach.

Here are a list of partners that are taking part in the Shropshire’s Heritage Heroes Virtual Volunteering project and what they would like you to help them with.  Links on how to contact the parters are also included.
