East Midlands Summer Regional meeting


Loading map...
  • The East Midlands summer regional meeting will be held at Bletchley Park on the afternoon of Friday 7 July. The agenda is still being finalised with regards to timings, however, we are pleased to welcome

    • Jon Elliott, ARA Head of Public Affairs to talk about GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation)

    • Hannah Jones, TNA Sector Development Manager East

    • Stephanie Neild, Archivist Leonard Cheshire Disability to talk about HLF funded project involving digitisation, outreach and oral histories to enable discovery of the history of the organisation, and

    • Jaana Pinnick, Research Data and Digital Preservation Manager at the British Geological Survey (and 2017 winner of the IRMS New Professionals Award) to talk about planning digital preservation for geological time scale, outlining the development of a digital preservation policy and strategy and gathering evidence for Trusted Repository certification at the National Geoscience Data Centre.

    We should also be hearing from Guy who is the archivist at Bletchley, and David Kenyon, who is the park’s historian.


    Unlike with other meetings, we will have to take bookings for anyone wishing to come along, so please do let me know as soon as possible if you would like to come along. Although we anticipate a slightly higher than normal number of attendees, there should still be enough space for everyone wishing to come along – but please do let me know.


    As mentioned above, the times are to be finalised, however, the meeting is likely to begin at around 1pm, with lunch at the venue beforehand. Again, if you could let me know if you wish to come along for lunch that would be great.

    Getting there (car share)

    There is a train station less than a five minutes’ walk from Bletchley Park, however, to keep costs down across the region, if anyone would like to join in a car share (either as a driver or passenger), again please let me know your preferences and location and I can put people in touch if necessary. I am certainly happy to give lifts to up to four people from the Derby/Nottingham area.

    I hope to see as many

    Best wishes,


    Archives and Records Association
