• New Proposal for the Dugdale Centre

    The Enfield Society has published an alternative plan for LBE's Children and Youth Services which would accomplish the Council's aims yet keep the Archive and Museum on level 1 at the Dugdale Centre.

    The Society has also offered £20,000 to the Council for the Museum which would be used to enhance the displays.

    On Friday 23rd October we received a reply from Mark Bradbury, Director of Property and Economy.
