Volunteers Keep our Archive Going.

Stamford Mercury Archive Trust is directed by a board of trustees, but the day-to-day work is carried out by a group of dedicated volunteers.  The jobs they carry out include compiling a complete inventory, answering enquiries from members of the public and undertaking simple conservation work.

The inventory is key to managing the archive’s contents as it includes the condition of each of the newspaper issue, which is then recorded on a computerised database for future reference.

New volunteers are most welcome.  For details, please contact:
