Archiving Policy


As a local history society we fully appreciate the record keeping of past generations, as well as the serendipitous existence of many old documents which have assisted our researches. We are aware that we are responsible for ensuring the retention of the history of our own organisation and have made arrangements to enable this to happen. Our Archiving Policy may be read here...   Archiving
