AGM 2021. This was held at Stevenage Museum on October 21st at the invitation of the Curator, Jo Ward.
This was followed by a talk by the Curator and a view of the items purchased through HHF grant aid.
In 2020 and 2021 the HHF has made three grants to museums.
"BARGES ON THE THAMES" in watercolour by William Ratcliffe. For North Hertfordshire Museum. Cost £2,600. HHF grant £1,300.
"THE RED CURTAIN" in oil by William Ratcliffe. For North Hertfordshire Museum. Cost £25,000. HHF grant £1,800.
"THE BLUEBELL WOOD, OXHEY" in watercolour by Beatrice Parsons. For Watford Museum. Cost £1,750. HHF grant £1,350.
Each application is looked at on its own merits, its significance to Hertfordshire and its provenance. Auctions are more difficult to value but there have been successes and losses. Guide Lines for Applicants are issued to all museum curators.
A web site www.hertfordshireheritagefund.co.uk has been created and an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Data Protection (DGRP) has been addressed and all HHF supporters have been informed.
The Trustees are grateful to our patrons, supporters and donors for making funds available for many years to come, so thank you.
