Hertford Museum aims to collect, preserve and interpret evidence of the history of the county town and surrounding parishes in the district of East Hertfordshire for the interest, enjoyment and understanding of the local community and other visitors.
The Museum cares for in excess of 100,000 objects. Its collections include archaeology, paper ephemera, ethnography, fine art, geology, natural history, photographs, social history and the Hertfordshire Regiment collection. It also holds the Addis company archive, including the largest collection of toothbrushes in the UK.
The Board meets four times per year at the Hertford Museum. The role of the HCC rep dates back to when the museum received HCC funding. There is no set directive for the role, it has evolved to ensure that HCC are kept abreast of museum activities and that the board is kept aware of local government activities or policies that may impact it.
