Description

The Sandstone Ridge Trust is looking for volunteers to help build up a library of images that will convey the uniqueness and distinctiveness of the Sandstone Ridge, its stories, communities, and people’s interactions with this special place. Images are a powerful way to help create an identity for the Ridge, raise people’s awareness of its wonderful landscape, and encourage greater involvement in looking after it. If you have an interest in photography this could be the role for you. These are exciting times for you to get involved with the Trust – following on from the successful conclusion of Ridge: Rocks and Springs, we are midway through another Heritage Lottery funded project in which we are exploring ways to secure the long-term future of the area.

How much time do you need to commit?

The role is flexible and you can give as much or as little time as you want to, but we suggest half a day or a day per week

We would prefer a minimum commitment of 3 months to the role.

What support will you be given?

Appropriate support and supervision in your role, including any training required

You will be responsible to a member of the Trustee Board or Transition Project Officer
