Public Consultation – Draft Archives Lending Policy

The Social & Community Development Committee will be hosting a public consultation meeting on Thursday, 17 June 2021, at 11am at the Museum of St Helena, Jamestown, to hear your views on the draft Archives Lending Policy that is currently out for public consultation.

Anyone wishing to make any written comment on the draft Policy may do so in writing to Executive Assistant, Nicole Plato, Central Support Service, at the Castle, Jamestown, or via email: by no later than Friday, 16 July 2021.
