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.

One of our members is a volunteer seamtress at Polesden Lacey, the National Trust house at Bookham, where The Arts Society volunteers are making clothes as worn in Edwardian times for the room stewards to wear on special occasions. Each weekday groups are at work and can be seen in action when the house is open to the public.
