Shared Harwell's Priority User Agreement for Kent museums?

In February this year,14 people from across the county's museums and heritage sites gathered at the Historic Dockyard in Chatham to find out how to manage in the aftermath of an emergency led by Emma Dadson from Harwell Document Restoration Services

During discussions, Emma Dadson suggested the idea of Kent & Medway museums jointly sharing one subscription to their Priority Users Agreement.  Annually this costs over £500 and entitles the user to emergency call outs, use of freezers and many other services.  The costs may be prohibitive to some of our smaller museums, but if we all club together, we can cut the price significantly.
