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.

Can you help BBC South East Today?

BBC South East Today reporter, Sara Smith, is working on their coverage to mark 100 years since the start of WWI - and wants to hear from you.

Sara is currently putting together a short piece on the role of women in Britain during the war.  As well as using archives of women working on the land, in munitions factories and as firefighters, she'd like to touch on the overall impact on their lives both during and after.

She is particularly interested in gathering an overview of the impact on women upon taking over what were traditionally men’s jobs during the war – and then being removed from them just as quickly.  If there is someone out there who might have a family story to tell, or you have some information in your archive or collection, then please get in touch with her directly. 

Contact Sara Smith on: 07809 597697 or email her: sara.smith@bbc.co.uk
