The Enfield Society met with the Leader, Cllr Caliskan, on 15th May. Among the many items raised was the future of the Museum and Archive Service [see Enfield Society News, 218, page 2.]
The Enfield Society was given a very unsatisfactory response and there appears to be no definite decision yet as to whether they these services stay in the building or not. The temporary exhibition gallery on the ground floor will not move but the issue is the museum permanent display and the archive reading room and storage on the first floor.
Martin Dearne from the Enfield Archaeological Society wrote an article
for The Enfield Dispatch expressing displeasure at the possible move.
A petition is currently running on change.org criticising the Council’s proposals for the Dugdale Centre.
