News from the Mills Archive
All change at the Archive
Founded in 2002, the Archive has grown and matured over the past twelve years. As a result we have decided to upgrade our charitable status. From 1st April 2014 we shall become a charitable incorporated organisation, and our charity number will change.
Later this year we shall unveil a fresh new look for our web site, and we shall also move our Archive catalogue to new software - "Access to Memory", or AtoM, approved by the International Council on Archives. Look out for more information soon.
We have won a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to extend and improve our Friends scheme. The grant forms part of the HLF's Catalyst scheme to improve the long-term viability of charities such as ours. Bringing several strategic opportunities, it will allow us to widen our network of supporters and make the Archive sustainable. We shall achieve this by catering for a wider range of interests and needs, including commercial ones. At the same time, we shall be able to offer benefits to a wide range of heritage groups and carry our message about the importance of preserving the records of our milling heritage even further.
