There is an urgent need for an editor for our annualy publication the Peeler. We also need a collator/data input person for the historical newsprint research database. A number of volunteers is searching local and national back copies of newspapers for stories about the Met Police. They complete a research pro forma and photocopy that article, recording all available details for the officers involved. This then needs to be transferred to the database.
This work can be undertaken entirely from home – no travelling involved. Full support and training will be given.
