Donations to the Collection
Items for a 'future museum for Harpenden' have been collected since at least the 1920s. They range from tickets or programmes for events, through paintings by local artists, collections of cuttings from local newspapers, to equipment from former shops - and 1000s of photos and digitised slides.
But the collection needs to grow and keep up with more recent times. Maybe you will be clearing 'granny's loft' and find seemingly insignicant items with a Harpenden connection.
Please contact us if you have information, or items which you might be willing to add to the Society's archives. We will check whether they duplicate or add to the collection, and will follow our acquisition policy and formal procedures for accepting donations.
