Armour and Mail repair for a Visitors Centre

What I'm about to ask is impeded by not knowing anything about armour!

I have been asked by the Manager of a borough council owned castle visitor centre in the North Midlands if I can recommend someone who would be able to visit their site to conduct repairs to some of their handling items of armour and mail.

I believe most of the repairs need to be done to various items of mail, but that some leather and riveting will also need to be replaced.

The site manager is insistent that the items not be removed from the site (due to major issues in the past), so all work will have to be done in situ. They have estimated that there is approximately only one days amount of work, but obviously that may change when the items are inspected.

So is there anyone out there that would be willing to do this?
