Notice of Motion - Extended Museum Opening Hours for Secondary School Pupils' Access

Notice has been given of the following motion to be moved by Councillor Rose, seconded by Councillor D Wilkinson:

 

Extended Museum Opening Hours for Secondary School Pupils’ Access

 

The current restricted opening hours of Maidstone Museum are deterring its use by Secondary School pupils.  Closing in the week at 4pm is too early for them to get there.  When the Museum was previously opened later there was a considerable usage by pupils from the Borough’s Secondary Schools.  As this age group is important to the Museum’s mission and long-term support by future generations, it is important that weekday access for them be made easier.

 

Maidstone Borough Council resolves to extend opening hours for the Museum one afternoon a week to 5pm.  The cost to be incorporated into the 2023/24 revenue budget and also the Medium-Term Financial Strategy.
