Opening of the ARC

On a sunny Sunday afternoon in June, 150 people saw history being made by Girlguiding Norfolk with the official opening of the Archive Resource Centre (ARC).

The sun shone brightly, the music by Taverham Brass Band was brilliant as ever, the afternoon tea was beautifully set out and delicious, the waitresses willing and smiley, the company delightful, the setting very relaxing and the opening of our ARC resource a very exciting time for our county.

Anglia Region’s archivist and heritage consultant, Ann Mitchell, was delighted to be at the opening ceremony and believes no other county have such a building.  Norfolk leading the way again!

Carol Bundock, County President, said “The triumphant opening of the ARC was the culmination of many years of hard work by many people. The vision has become a reality, our future is secure because of our wonderful past, which we can now have fun enjoying with all ages in our own and wider community, whilst also preserving for future generations”.

It was just less than three months since the turf was cut preparing for the installation of the new modular building designed to not only hold Girlguiding Norfolk archives, but  also to serve as a launch for the next step of the project. The work is in progress… This is just the beginning!
