In 2012-13, a large number of items were marked for disposal from the collection because they no longer fit with Elmbridge Museum's collecting criteria. In the past, many items were collected from outside the Borough of Elmbridge and added to the collection, but these have little or no relevance to our local history. By following recommended guidelines, our Effective Collections Project Officer is working to transfer some objects to other museums and organisations where the artefacts will be better suited and carefully looked after.
