'Rich heritage' on offer for those choosing flats to rent in Wimbledon
More opportunity to access historical resources is being offered to those living in flats to rent in Wimbledon and across Merton, it has been announced.
Merton Council revealed that its Heritage Centre is moving and joining up with the Local Studies Centre to form the Heritage and Local Studies Centre.
According to the local authority, residents will be able to visit six days a week - up from the four that the Heritage Centre is currently open - while more events, activities and exhibitions will be staged as a result of the changes.
Cabinet member for community services Maurice Groves explained that the borough's heritage is "extremely rich", adding: "We want to make sure as many people as possible have the opportunity to find out all about Merton's history."
The new centre is due to open at Morden Library on May 18th.
Earlier this month, the council opened a new children's centre at Merton Abbey Primary School in south Wimbledon.
