Volunteers will be involved in preparing the Fairfield site for occasional visiting groups over the next eighteen months and promoting the new heritage centre at external events across the city. The young people in this photograph are from the Govan Youth Information Project, they helped us remove the boards covering the windows at Fairfield. The new glazing was revealed to celebrate the completion of Phase 1 of the renovations in August 2010.

You might like to help with:

  • running reminiscence sessions or arts workshops
  • office administration and marketing (e.g. designing flyers, sending out invitations, writing or sending press releases, arranging listings for local media)
  • hosting a stand at another event to let people know about Fairfield
