Piece of Cake for Volunteers
Wessex Archaeology’s volunteers were treated to an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ tour at Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum last week as part of a Volunteer Together event. Organised by the Stonehenge Learning & Outreach Coordination Group (SLOCG) this event was open to everyone who volunteers within the Stonehenge landscape for either English Heritage, the National Trust, Wiltshire Museum, Salisbury & South Wiltshire Museum and of course Wessex Archaeology.
The afternoon featured updates by the five SLOCG members on their current volunteering opportunities, a tour of the museum’s new gallery space and a special viewing of some of the rare artefacts that have been temporarily removed from the display cases. There was also plenty of time to network and chat over tea and cake! The event was attended by over 80 volunteers and was enjoyed by all.
