LETTER: It is a museum

I’M glad the district council is considering re-naming the Novium, and not before time!

I would suggest it be called either Chichester Museum or perhaps the Chichester District Museum (the CDM).

It is of interest to the whole district and is funded by and belongs to the residents of Chichester district as well as to Cicestrians.

The word museum is no longer seen as boring and stuffy, but the fictitious name Novium has had its day and does not deserve to be included in the new name.
