Many Whitstable Society members will be aware that the Council plans to cut the operating hours of Whitstable Museum. A public meeting has already taken place, where possibilities as to how the museum could be run in future were discussed. A further public meeting has been arranged for Friday 27th September at St Alphege Infants School, Oxford Street, commencing at 7pm, which organisers would like as many people to attend as possible.
A letter to the Council, from groups within Whitstable, is currently being formulated requesting a halt to the process and further consultation before the planned cuts take place. We have been asked to sign and hence we discussed the plans at this months members meeting and those present voted unanimously against the planned reduction in hours.
We are proposing therefore that the Whitstable Society’s stance should be against the planned reduction in hours. Can any Society members please let us know by Monday 23rd September 2013 at the latest, if your view is different to this, i.e you are for the reduction in hours.
Should you have any queries or wish to discuss this further, please do not hesitate to contact us.
