Riverside’s Conservation team have been nominated for two national awards, one for their work on South African Railways locomotive 3007 and another in preventive conservation.

The Institute of Conservation’s annual conservation awards aim to recognise “excellence in conservation, collections care, conservation research and digital preservation”. The awards are supported by Sir Paul McCartney.

This year the Riverside Conservation team have been nominated for the Pilgrim Trust Award for their work on the South African Railways locomotive 3007, and the Care of Collections Award for their work tackling the moth infestation among the transport collection.   

Members of Riverside’s Conservation team will present their work to the award judges on 25 October. The final results will be announced on the 1st December. Watch this space …

Good luck Team Conservation!
