A growing number of people are getting involved in the conservation of the county’s rich heritage.

That is according to Heritage Lincolnshire, which has put on Heritage at Risk training days at Long Sutton, Holbeach, Algarkirk and elsewhere in the district.

In recognition of the work the organisation does with volunteers Heritage Lincolnshire has achieved the Investing in Volunteers Quality Standard.

Liz Bates, chief executive officer of Heritage Lincolnshire, said: “The team is delighted to have achieved this quality standard in recognition of our commitment to our volunteers.

“Heritage Lincolnshire has seen a significant increase in the number of people wanting to get involved in the conservation of the county’s rich heritage and we benefit hugely from their expertise and contribution. We hope that this quality standard will encourage others to work with us and we look forward to celebrating our achievements together in the future.”

Investors in Volunteers is the UK quality standard for all organisations involving volunteers.

It aims to improve the quality of the volunteering experience for all volunteers and for organisations to acknowledge the enormous contribution made by volunteers.

Heritage Lincolnshire was assessed against a range of best practice standards and proved to excel in all aspects of working with its volunteers. To find out about volunteering, call 01529 461499.
