The Arts Society Heritage Volunteers help to conserve our heritage both in Britain and in parts of Europe. Conservation and preservation of our heritage are tremendous burdens on the limited resources of museums, National Trust properties, historic houses, libraries and gardens. Volunteers help them in non-specialist but vital ways by caring for collections, recording documents, guiding and stewarding. Heritage Volunteers help to keep them accessible for all.

Our present projects are:

  • Helping to conserve materials at Stansted House
  • Repairing the books at the Admiralty Library in the Portsmouth Dockyard
  • Congratulations! Portsdown DFAS Heritage Volunteers Highly Commended in the ‘Marsh Award for Volunteering with NADFAS’ 2013 for volunteering at Stansted Park and 2015 for work at the Admiralty Library.
