Resolved- The minutes of the meeting held 11/12/2020 were agreed as a correct record.
Emma Banks, the Community Manager representing the Hampshire Cultural
Trust presented a report on activities at, or relating
to, Eastleigh Museum. December only open for a short period before
third lockdown, had good visitor figures with events such as the
Christmas Tree Festival. Regarding collection care, Emma and the
Community Experience manager have been looking at an audit of
collections that are related to Eastleigh that also link with the
Options appraisal process. Horizon activity 2020 continued with
face-to-face sessions at the Bridge Education centre and remote
sessions such as creative boxes and CPD sessions. The Industrious
mind project which started in November has had to be paused as
could not continue working with partners during lockdown, hoping to
start again in May. Eastleigh Connections Options Appraisal has
continued throughout lockdown working with an online consultation
with a full break down in point 5.2 of the agenda. Individuals from
the consultation were invited to form story groups as the next part
of the process. They have had 3 meetings in which they have
discussed the design brief and future roles of the museum with 2
further meetings scheduled for the near future before the project
ends in March/April. The options appraisal report will then be
submitted to the trust in April and will look to choose a date in
April to share with those involved. The Trust are consulting with
how it can continue to work with the story groups.
Consideration was given to the
finance report presented by DN outlining the financial state of the
museum ending in the third quarter.
Part of the marketing budget invested in newly created online platform Culture on Call which has showcased exhibitions online and continued to keep engagement within the local community.
To commemorate the 100th year anniversary of the Royal British Legion in Eastleigh it was noted that it would be good to celebrate this in November by, for example, decorating Eastleigh Town Centre. Jean stated that One Community could help with the decorating.
Eastleigh Borough council are working with a small commission of architects to address how the town can be decorated. EBC will narrow the brief and share the result with other community stakeholders. Hoping to bring low or no cost community-based art into this package as well.
GR stated that EBC had resources to
invest in a thank you event after Covid and for other
