To help the Society achieve its aims

We need members to:

  • Monitor planning applications
  • Act as stewards at East Cowes Heritage Centre
  • Assist at events organised or supported by the Society
  • Research historical Island topics with a view to publishing pamphlets and books
  • Join in networking with like minded organisations on the Island


It helps if volunteers are computer literate but is not compulsory

Volunteers should be good listeners to understand other people's and organisations' points of view and pass them on to the Executive committee of the Society.

It helps if volunteers are good communicators to present the Society's aims and/or help at the Heritage Centre.

An interest in historic and planning research is welcome.

DIY skills are helpful with maintenance work at the Heritage Centre.
