New Year, New Name

  • 3rd January 2012

Happy New Year to all of our readers, we hope you enjoyed the festive season.

We are starting 2012 with the announcement of our new service name. We will now be known as Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service as, effective as of now, we have become a joint service which brings together the Worcestershire Record Office (comprising the County Hall branch and the History Centre branch), and the Worcestershire Archaeology Service. When we move into The Hive in July our new joint service will occupy the History floor on level 1. We hope that this new partnership brings about great developments for both the service and its users.

Very best wishes for a prosperous 2012 to you all. Join us tomorrow to find out the which of our collections has made it to number one in our Top 10 countdown!
