This week members of the AVG took time away from our usual work and visited The Spalding Gentlemen’s Society (SGS). Members of the group had expressed an interest in visiting another archive and thanks to Anita Hollinshead at Museum Development East Midlands (MDEM) she put us in touch with SGS. Dustin, the librarian, kindly gave us a tour of their fabulous collection and then taught us some new conservation skills. It was a great day enjoyed by all.
