Welcome to four new researchers who joined the Fairfield Heritage Project at the end of March. Through the Government sponsored Community Jobs Fund we have been able to offer Dan, Martin and Marianne – all history graduates – the chance to apply their research skills to exhibition interpretation. Their posts which will run for six months also offer an opportunity to learn about documenting and caring for a collection and to promote the project through outreach work. Meanwhile Abigail – the fourth member of our research team – has already made a significant contribution to the project as a volunteer helping to develop an education resource for primary schools. Welcome aboard everyone!
