11th August – Interpretation Board Workshop, to follow on from the interpretation training, this workshop is brilliant for anyone who is part of a group wanting to display information on an interpretation board- what should go on the board and how it can be best laid out for maximum effect.

29th August – How to Archive, with the Cheshire Records Office at the Canalside Conference centre, Middlewich. A fantastic workshop for anyone who has resources and isn’t sure what to do with them!
