A fantastic opportunity is available for an experienced and enthusiastic Project Coordinator to deliver a Heritage Lottery Funded (HLF) project titled ‘The Tales and Trails of the Tillingbourne Valley’.
The project will focus on the wonderful and unique industrial heritage of the Tillingbourne Valley and will encourage the villages along the valley to research and record its unique industrial past that has stamped its character on their communities. Leather, Paper, Iron, Gunpowder and Corn milling are some of the industries the River Tillingbourne supported for centuries but memories and knowledge of this history are fading fast. The aim of this HLF funded project is to give the next generation, who may know little about the history of the area they live in, a chance to get their hands on the facts and explore the past story of their communities in an engaging way.
Based at Shere Museum, the Coordinator will recruit, train and manage a team of volunteers to deliver an outstanding programme that will research and archive the industrial heritage of the Tillingbourne Valley and inspire a new generation of volunteers and enthusiasts.
