A new role to help Powys Archives recruit more volunteers and develop stronger links with the community has been partly funded by Pave Aways.

Steve Woodward has been taken on by Powys County Council’s Archives service as its Volunteer and Community Engagement Officer, based in the new Archives and Information Management centre in Llandrindod Wells, which we built earlier this year.

The eight-month post is part-funded by us, the Museum, the Archives and Library Division of Welsh Government, and Powys County Council.

Steve’s role will be to organise activities and events for Powys Archives to promote the service and to encourage more users to visit the new facilities at Unit 29 Ddole Road.

Pave Aways Managing Director Steven Owen said: “We are very pleased to have completed the Archives accommodation project on time and on budget for Powys County Council.

“Our construction projects always include an element of community engagement and we usually employ local tradesmen or use local firms for supplies and services.

“We are delighted that on this occasion, in addition to that, part of the capital funding will be used to fund a temporary Volunteer and Community Engagement Officer for Powys Archives.”
