Yes, you read that right. Local military historian and author, Murray Rowlands, asked at the meeting of Surrey Heath Local Committee yesterday evening about what the members of the committee knew of the suggested change to Surrey Heath Museum becoming a virtual museum.
Being a historian, Murray is more finely attuned to these things than I am. So, I spoke with Murray at the meeting and he said he heard suggestions of the change to Surrey Heath Museum’s status.
This is appalling news. When, as a borough councillor in the past, the subject of Museum closure came up, I was part of those who fought to save it. Looks like that battle hasn’t been won.
Without respect for the heritage, history, or the remembrance of those who’ve left their mark, on our communities then we are all poorer, and diminished as a result.
