The Record Office is CLOSED until further notice
Focusing on the health and wellbeing of our staff and customers is our top priority. In line with national guidance and government recommendations we have taken the decision to close the record office until further notice. We will not be able to undertake research or give collections advice at this time, but will endeavour to respond to any enquiries, if possible, but this service is dependent upon staff availability. We will put any further updates about the service on our website. We’re encouraging all our customers to stay safe in these unprecedented times by keeping up to date with the latest government guidance at www.gov.uk/coronavirus
Many people support us by visiting the office, using our services and depositing records. We are very grateful to all of them and aim to provide an excellent service to everyone, whether visiting in person or contacting us from afar.
If you cannot offer a regular commitment but would like to contribute to the service we provide, you could make a donation to help us purchase records. Donations are held by the Friends of the Record Office who provide a fund we can use when records are offered for private sale. Funds also contribute to our outreach work to help more people use and enjoy the resources we care for.
There is a donations box in the office foyer or make a payment to:
‘Friends of the Record Office’
c/o The Record Office for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland
