NADFAS Heritage Volunteers, both here and in mainland Europe, work to conserve and preserve our heritage, saving our hard pressed museums, historic houses, churches and gardens many millions of pounds. The volunteers help in non-specialist but vital ways by caring for collections of all sorts thereby preserving and keeping our heritage accessible to all.

City of Worcester DFAS volunteers are involved in repair, cataloguing and restoration at the libraries of Hagley Hall, The Hurd Library, and the Dyson Perrins Museum, and the repair and restoration of altar frontals, and church vestments at the Cathedral, and in 2011, in conjunction with the Cathedral Embroiderers, ten new Offertory Bags were created in canvas. In addition the lovely Lecturn Fall seen on arrival at meetings was worked by the group and presented to the Society on the occasion of our 25th Anniversary in 2012. Looking to the future, recent Lottery money has enabled our volunteers to set up a workshop at Hartlebury Castle to repair and renovate the lovely embroideries of the late Lady Julia Carew.

Training is given in all aspects of the work for those who feel that their enthusiasm may not be matched by skill, and any one interested should contact Rebecca Dale via Contact Us.
