Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact to register your interest.

National Sports Museum Online

The National Sports Museum Online has been launched.

The aim of the website is to draw together information about all sporting collections in the UK, whether held in museums, archives, community venues, universities, by private collectors....

The website is free of charge and you can set up your own page to let people know about your collection. There is also the facility to add upcoming events and share your activity with other users and the public.

In addition, you can also subscribe to a new email list. The email list aims to keep everyone talking about, sharing information about, and learning about, sporting heritage.

Finally, 30th September is the National Sporting Heritage Day. There is lots of activity planned for this first year, but if you haven't been able to join in this year, many organisations are already planning their 2015 activity and the Museum are really keen to hear your ideas.
