Open Evening for Councillors
On Monday 20th June we held a special Open Evening for Councillors to introduce both existing and new Members to the Archives Service. Fourteen councillors attended from the three funding authorities: Bedford Borough Council, Central Bedfordshire Council and Luton Borough Council. The Councillors were shown a varied range of documents from all periods of history, with commentary on how the sources can be used for research today. There was also an opportunity to go `behind the scenes’ in the Conservation Workshop and in the Stackroom (document storage area). Everyone had an enjoyable and informative evening, and our thanks go to staff and User Panel members for all their hard work in organising the event.
