Refurbishment Commences

The long-anticipated conversion of the former kitchen at no. 4 Doughty Mews into additional space for the storage of archival material has now begun. The Society’s 2009-10 fundraising campaign which focussed on raising awareness and financial support to begin the task of re-housing our invaluable collection generated over £15,000 for this purpose. The planned work to refurbish the kitchen could not be undertaken during 2010-11, for various reasons, but is now proceeding apace.

Staff removing the last remaining archival material from the kitchen where it had been kept in recent years as a temporary measure. It will be returned in due course, but not before the refurbishment of the room and the installation of conservation-standard storage facilities.

Members working in the library while the works are in progress may suffer some disruption; we would like to apologise if this is the case and to thank all members for their patience during this time.
