Meet Our Volunteers: Mark

Mark 1

We have fantastic volunteers and would like to introduce a few of them to you, in their own words. So, without further ado, here’s Mark. I could say how brilliant he is, but I’ll let him do that himself…

“Writer, Comedian Extraordinaire. My name’s Mark and it’s a little tough to do justice to the absolute majesty of my being. Indexing newspaper articles, I travel years into the past. Decades even. I’m the guy who writes the guides to the tomes you use for research. I read them through, come up with a summary that does them justice and explains to you in clear terms, and then type them into a document which you then use to locate specific articles. So basically… without me, you’re lost!”

Welcome to our Blog!

The ARK store

Thanks for visiting our new blog. Here we plan to give you an insight into the work that goes on here at the ARK and a chance to find out more about the Heritage Lottery funded projects we do. We’ll also be writing about, and showing off, some of the amazing things in our collections.

Over the weeks and months to come, you’ll hear from different staff-members and volunteers about what they do, their favourite items from the archive, and things that have been happening at the ARK.

We hope you enjoy reading our blogs – let us know what you think!
