The group responds to requests for help in conserving our local heritage. Recently the HV group received a request from Drumlanrig Castle to restore some items in the liabray
Our team (Hazel, Pat, Grace and Susan) spent two days at Drumlanrig. On the first Caroline Bendix explained the training she had set up for NADFAS volunteers and gave an overview of the reference materials we will be provided with. She then gave information in great detail about the care and restoration of various types of bindings. The second day was practical, learning how to complete a form in detail for each book, and then dusting and beginning to mend the books under Caroline’s supervision.
