Please tell your friends and acquaintances that I have been banned from the Library at Crich for life at the the behest of the Curator, Glynn Wilton. Following an appeal Glynn's actions were unanimously endorsed by the Board of Management. I am however still allowed to be a tram conductor and participate in other activities at the Museum.
I have asked for this to be published in 'Contact' along with the reasons, but like most things at Crich, this request has disappeared into a memory hole.
I think that Alan Kirkman has raised a valid question but I can't answer it. The original letter dated 23rd March 2009 simply said that my work in the Library will no longer be required.
I have interpreted this as a ban on my working in the Library in any capacity. I have not tried to gain access to the Library since the ban was confirmed by the Board and I have avoided contact with those Board and staff members directly involved. I have tried to maintain a working relationship with other Board and staff members and with volunteers.
I initiated the Sheffield 264 Project which has been supported by the Board but all meetings took place outside the Library. I hope we can now complete this project this autumn and I would love to be involved in similar projects in the future.
Following various comments, all I am asking is that the fact that I have been banned along with the reasons is published and then we will all know. I don't know why I was banned and I will coninue to fight the ban until it is explained in simple language and with examples of my unacceptable behavior.
