Heritage Volunteers

You will know from the TAS Review and from talking with friends, that Heritage Volunteering is a widespread activity which meets an essential aim of TAS.

TASHH has an active Heritage Volunteer team who have worked for many years conserving the Iveagh Bequest Books in the Adam Library and Lecture Room at Kenwood.

Since the refurbishment of Kenwood House, we are working at the V & A National Art Library. Some of our members also work on other projects as well, including the library of the British Dental Association. We are a very friendly team split into two groups and we work the first and second Monday in the month.

There are many and varied projects which need volunteers and training is given.

There are two main types of work:

  • behind the scenes generally in archive departments, sorting, repairing and cleaning
  • meeting the public or visitors by stewarding, leading short tours or talking about artefacts.

If you would like to join a companionable group doing interesting and useful work helping to meet the aims of TAS then please contact Catherine Haworth, Heritage Volunteer Representative (use the contact us link on the About Us page).
