At the beginning of November 2005 the Museum received the great news that we had been granted £1,594.70 from the SEWS Museum Development Fund.
This was due to a grant application for funding to buy the database and computer equipment needed to document our collection. As you all know we need to document the Museum's collection as part of our bid to become an accredited museum. The new computer will store the database, which will hold the details of every single item in the collection. The Curator has said that "the grant is great news and although Christmas is a very busy time we hope to get started on the database before then."
Getting the grant also shows the support that we are now receiving from local museum organisations. We will keep you informed on how the database is coming along.
