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 joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

Do you have a story for the Kent Life magazine?

‘Hello my name is Rachael Hale and I’m a freelance history writer for Kent Life magazine.  I write a regular ‘History Scrapbook’ style feature for the magazine which highlights object and archive stories related to a particular month.  I’m now seeking items to feature in the September and December 2015 issues (which can include anything given as a Christmas present) and the February, May, August and November 2016 issues and I would love to hear from any museum with a relevant piece they would like to see highlighted.  Kent Life magazine works a long way in advance so regardless of which month you may have a piece for, I’d be grateful if you could email me as soon as possible at rachael@historymagpie.com or call me on 07885 055169.  Many thanks for your help.’
