Facing the music in Yorkshire

04 July 2012

Following a campaign by thousands of choirs, amateur musicians and bands, one of the largest collections of music scores in the UK now has a new home.

The consortium of 12 local authorities who inherited the collection from the old West Riding County Council also worked hard to save the music service from cuts. This nationally important collection of 500,000 music scores, now known as the Yorkshire Music Library, has been safely relocated from its former site in Wakefield to Kirklees Library HQ in Red Doles Lane, Huddersfield.

Harrow Green was engaged at short notice to manage the sequential packing, transport and relocation to the new site.

Harrow Green’s project manager, Ewan Campbell, said: ‘We moved what equated to 1400 linear metres of stock, plus 95 filing cabinets, to time and to budget. We are delighted to have been an integral part of preserving the music service for all its many users.’

Fresh Horizons, a local social enterprise, will manage the new music service, eventually providing an online reservation service and an interactive website.

Rosalyn Wimpenny, project manager for Fresh Horizons, said: ‘The Harrow Green team worked extremely hard to ensure the stock was moved carefully to its new home, despite the added complication of the steps at Red Doles Lane and the soaring heat. They kept me up to date with progress at all times and nothing was too much trouble. The team provided a friendly and flexible service for which we are extremely grateful.’
