Bedfordshire Archives & Records Service – Autumn Programme 2016
The Bedfordshire Archives & Records Service is running a series of events from July through to December 2016. A list of the events with full details may be found in the Autumn programme 2016 pdf file.
Included in the programme are 5 practical workshops which are offered in association with and sponsored by the Bedfordshire Local History Association.
The workshops are aimed at local history groups, parish councillors, churchwardens, societies and organizations who may have, or be considering collecting, historical material and making it available to others.
Anyone can attend and you may book for all or just one of the workshops. However it is recommend that societies try to have at least one member attend each of the workshops to get the overall picture of current legislation and ideas. The workshops are being held once a fortnight. Bedfordshire Archives aim to run the workshops in the morning but if they are oversubscribed they will run a repeat session in the afternoon.
Booking – Please contact the archives service to book.
Cost – BLHA members FREE, non-members £5 per person.
Note: if you are a member of a group that belongs to the BLHA you are a member of the BLHA too!
If you are not a member why not join? Annual subscription (1st April to 31st March) is £5 for individuals or £10 for societies and other organisations. http://www.bedfordshire-lha.org.uk/about-us/
