This article describes the setting up and implementation of an archive programme in a long‐established UK voluntary society, the Elgar Society, which has an active plan for future development. It examines some of the difficulties involved as well as opportunities offered in the context of managing the archives of a voluntary society while operating as a volunteer, honorary archivist in an unfunded and time‐limited capacity.
