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 most recent Heritage project was at Honiton Museum where eight volunteers sorted the contents of a large quantity of boxes of clothes and other artefacts made of lace and a strategy for dealing with some short-comings in the recording system was arrived at.  The system for labelling and photographing the items was also improved.  This project has now been completed, although one member is continuing as volunteer at the Museum on a private basis.
