Last year’s event questionnaire was really useful to us, so once again, we would like to know what kind of training and events you’d particularly like to see in Scotland!
The survey will close on 20 January 2019. Please follow the link below and let us know what events you’d like us to host in Scotland next year! All comments and suggestions are welcome!

Question and answer panel session
Newhailes House brings three centuries of history to life. Originally built in the 17th century, this Palladian house was owned by the influential Dalrymple family and featured prominently during the Scottish Enlightenment. The National Trust for Scotland, through the Collections Conservation team, is embarking on a 4-month integrated pest management project to manage the moths at Newhailes House.
The project will involve treating a number of objects in the property for moths as well as a deep clean of affected rooms. We’re looking for a team of volunteers to help complete the project from mid-January through the end of March 2019.
