LAWRENCE HOUSE MUSEUM MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE
The Management Committee of the Lawrence House Museum consists of nine councillors, the Curator of the museum, the Chairman of the Friends of Lawrence House, representatives of the Stewards, the Town Archivist and the Town Clerk acting as Secretary and Treasurer. The museum is funded through a grant from the Town Council and from donations from visitors, as well as the occasional bequest. The Management Committee oversees the development of the museum and its collections, and is advised by the Curator.
Lawrence House itself is owned by the National Trust and leased to the Town Council on a 99 year lease from April 1992. The Town Council is Trustee of the house and in that capacity makes decisions about its maintenance and repair.
