The Keep is asking for views on proposed changes to public opening hours. The Keep is an archive centre that offers free public access to the collections of the East Sussex & Brighton & Hove Record Office, Brighton and Hove Local History Collections, the University of Sussex Special Collections including Mass Observation Archive
The Keep is run in partnership between East Sussex County Council, Brighton and Hove City Council and the University of Sussex.
Why They Are Consulting
Funding for local government is reducing significantly. As a result, East Sussex County Council and Brighton and Hove City Council are having to make choices about how services are run across all their departments. They are considering ways to cut the costs of running The Keep by £125,000 a year, including a proposal to reduce The Keep’s opening hours. Find out more here.
