Just a few of the thousands of objects in the house

The inventory database lists each of the 9,000 items in the Hardmans’ House. Over the past few months, volunteers have been busy checking drawers, cupboards, boxes and bags for hidden objects and making a list of where each item is located.

The inventory database now needs to be updated with these changes. If you have an eye for detail and are confident with computers, this may be the role for you.

When? Tues, Wed or Thurs from 10.30am until 4.00pm (flexible)

Inventory marking volunteer

Inventory marking requires a steady hand

There are thousands of items at the Hardmans' House, ranging from cameras to eggs that you can post to love letters that bring tears to the eye. Each one of these objects has been entered onto a database and given its own inventory number. The next step is to mark this on each item.

If you love getting hands on with historic objects, this may be the role for you. No experience is needed, just a steady hand and attention to detail.

When? Tues, Wed or Thurs from 10.30am to 4pm (flexible)
