Volunteers' Handbook and other Guidance

The VCH Cumbria Volunteers' Handbook, now in its third edition, contains information and guidelines specific to Cumbria. Though the detailed guidelines within it have been superceeded by the fuller, national VCH Parish Template, you will still find our project Handbook useful for source material that relates to Cumbria. The national VCH website also contains other guidance documents, including a checklist of electronic sources.

VCH Parish History Template (2017)

The VCH Parish History Template consists of detailed guidance on the content of each chapter within a parish article, the order in which the sub-chapters should be presented and links to key resources.
