Preceding the talk by Mary our AGM will be held, further details will be available in the December journal.

Mary, the recently retired Archives Manager at Shropshire Archives will then join us to talk about her experiences over 30 years working in the archives. As well as reflecting on her own experiences Mary would also be interested to discuss the experiences of users of the Archives in Shropshire or elsewhere.
