Answer for Museum Access

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Vestry House Museum and William Morris Museum are both important cultural institutions offering unique collections. I am concerned that their future is secured for both current and future generations. This is doubly important given that Waltham Forest already has one of the lowest levels of cultural provision in the capital. I have recently met with the Leader of the council to discuss this matter and look forward to a positive outcome.
