Save Bexley Archives

From the Federation of Family History Societies (www.ffhs.org.uk)

Save Bexley Archives

Local authorities are under great financial pressure, leading to reduced funding for services that are of particular use to family historians. For instance, Bexley Council is proposing to close Bexley Local Studies and Archive Centre as part of its 2014/15 Budget plan and transfer the service to Bromley Central Library in another borough. The Council has published this ‘budget option’ on its website here: http://www.bexley.gov.uk/index.aspx?articleid=16835.

If you live in the Bexley area or have research interests there, you may well wish to become involved in the campaign to protect its local archive services. You can find more information at http://www.bexleyhistoricalsociety.co.uk/74.html
