Grimsby’s Fishing Heritage Centre is launching a new project and is seeking the help of North-East Lincolnnshire residents to make it happen.
The Dynamic Collections Project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and in partnership with North Lincolnshire Museum, will be looking at the thousands of objects in the museum, working to make them available online for public viewing.
Alongside this, volunteers will have the chance to uncover fascinating stories about a range of items and get an unprecedented insight into the history of North East Lincolnshire.
Those who take part with also receive a range of training to ensure the well-being of these artefacts and learn how to create digital content which will be made available to the people of North East Lincolnshire and beyond.
To help prepare for an exhibition, the Dynamic Collections team will help to repackage, organise and research objects. Anyone who wishes to volunteer will be required to commit to a weekly three-hour session at the museum or at home.
Dynamic Collections Project Officer Alistair Eachus said: “It’s an exciting time at the Fishing Heritage Centre and we need your help to make this project the best it can be.
“Throughout the process, myself and the team will be going through a host of interesting objects steeped in local history. After all the hard work spent collating the pieces, there will also be an exhibition to showcase what we’ve put together.”
