Wigan Archives & Local Studies Public Consultation
Started by: jo anne (31894)   Report abuse
Your Archives Needs You!

Public consultation for exciting proposals to refurbish and expand the Archives & Local Studies service in Leigh Town Hall.

We're looking to get your views and ideas on the proposals that would bring the Archives public searchroom to the ground floor of Leigh Town Hall and a new Archives/Museum exhibition space to the vacant Town Hall shop units.

Please come along to our first consultation session on Thur 25 June, 6-7.45pm at Leigh Town Hall and let us know if you can attend at archives@wigan.gov.uk
