Strategy Committee

In September 2012, the Strategy Committee agreed to keep the London Fire Brigade Museum open until a permanent home could be found.
However, as the Southwark site, which included the Museum in Winchester House was to be sold, the Museum also had to close and all the items in the collection were placed into storage, where they have remained.
A small pop-up display was set up in the Rear Block of Lambeth, formerly the Brigade Workshops, comprising two appliances and poster displays which attracted a large number of visitors until it too later closed.
The Brigade established an internal working group to explore funding, property and governance. Officers were tasked with working on the feasibility of transferring the Museum to a charitable status. This report does not seem to have been made public.
