A LOCAL not-for-profit is looking for volunteers to help preserve an iconic part of Cockburn’s history.

The Historical Society of Cockburn was formed in 1975 by residents concerned about the preservation of the city’s heritage.

The society helped restore the Azelia Ley Homestead in Manning Park 40 years ago and continues its custodial role there today by adding to the museum’s collection, taking part in special events and running tours.

Volunteer Diane Stewart has been part of the society for more than 10 years.

She said volunteers could offer as much or as little of their time as they could spare.

“There is always new and exciting projects to discuss and oversee,” she said.

“I’d love for others to join our group of guides.”
