Coun Angela Newton, chairman of South Holland District Council in 1994, officially opened South Holland Volunteer Bureau at Ayscoughfee Hall in Spalding in 1994.

The opening was accompanied by a fanfare of trumpets by Phil Sharman (15) and John Henson (16), members of Spalding Youth Brass which provided a concert in Ayscoughfee gardens.

The bureau aimed to match volunteers with organisations needing help.

At that time, it was only open on Tuesdays and Fridays.
