In the recent on-line Q&A session, the future of the borough’s museum in Knoll Road was raised. It was apparent that no decision was going to be made public at that point. But it also seemed pretty clear that some fairly significant changes were coming. The message was that the old way of doing things had served the borough well – but it was the old way.
The council is looking for a fresh start with a more modern approach to providing museum services. (Interestingly, on other occasions the council has referrred to ‘heritage services’, as if a bricks and mortar museum would be a thing of the past. But no such terminology was used during the Q&A session. Can anything be read into this – or was the council just being careful?)
