THE White House Heritage Centre at Whitehouse Park will celebrate its first anniversary later this month.

Over the past 12 months the historic building, which was completely restored in recent years by the White House Preservation Trust, has attracted more than 1,000 visitors, and the centre is now on the look-out for more volunteers.

“Volunteers carry out a wide range of activities with roles to suit all, whether that be in visitor facing roles such as greeting people, giving tours, serving refreshments, or behind the scenes carrying out much needed support roles including marketing, events planning or administration,” a spokesperson explained.

“Visitors have been most impressed with the quality of their visit and many have commented that it has been down to the volunteers; indeed our volunteers have been nominated in the Newtownabbey Volunteer Accolades taking place in September.”

Anyone who would like to find out more about volunteering opportunities at Newtownabbey’s oldest building should come along to the information days being held at the White House on Monday 23 and Friday 27 July between 2pm and 5pm.
