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, churches 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 Heritage Volunteers have been working on cataloguing the Portman papers at Hestercombe House. They have recently completed and signed off 'Know Your Place' at Somerset Heritage Centre Taunton.
