Opportunities to volunteer

There are lots of ways to take part as a volunteer:

  • Join our team of Community Editors for the website
  • Help collect, record and transcribe local memories and tales
  • Help out with events and activities

Give as much or as little time as you can spare

Community editors

A team of volunteer website editors update this site. We sub-edit and publish the pages that are submitted to Our Welwyn Garden City. Editors take it in turn to edit the site, so the demands on your time will not be high.

We will give you free training. You do not have to be a computer expert – none of us were before we had the training!

If you don’t own a computer at home, don’t worry. You can use a public computer at Hertfordshire Archives and Local Studies or at your local library.

Help out with events and activities

We will be organising events in the town to encourage people to add their memories and pictures to the website. You could either help us with an event or organise your own.

Want to get involved and make new friends? Contact us to find out more.

  • You do not give a date for this photo but it looks to me like a ‘knobbly knees’ or ‘loveliest legs’ competition at a post WW2 “Murphy Radio Sports Day”. The annual event was very popular, was held on the then Handside Playing fields (now a football/rugby pitch I believe) and included a dance in a marquee until midnight. This event was still being held at least until 1956.
