Heritage Volunteering

The Arts Society Isle of Man runs a programme of heritage volunteering

The Arts Society Isle of Man Heritage Volunteers Report 2016-17

During 2017 work on the Milntown library was completed. A smaller group was tasked with cleaning a grimy chandelier.

The chandelier needed to be completely dismantled and reassembled. It is now in sparkling condition and awaiting hanging.

Cleaning took place in the ensuite 1950s bathroom, the volunteers perched on the edge of the bath or sitting on the loo with their individual washing up bowls. Ever resourceful!

The team of volunteers are now carrying out a full house contents accession register with the backing of the Trustees and staff. This started in 2017 and is ongoing.
