Phew – what a month May has been. Three of the projects I am currently working on hit significant milestones:
Trowbridge Museum submitted their Round 2 application to the HLF. Fingers crossed that all the hard work pays off and they get good news in September and are able to push ahead with the ‘Onwards and Upwards’ plans to expand and redevelop the museum.
Aim Biffa Award have announced the first round of projects to be supported by the History Makers – people who shaped our world programme. Congratulations to Clifton Suspension Bridge, London Transport Museum and The National Justice Museum. Really looking forward to seeing the exhibitions take shape. Round 2 will be opening for applications later in the summer.
Bridport Museum reopened to the public on Sat 27th May. After years of fundraising, planning, hard graft and lots of tea and biscuits the new museum is open and looks amazing. The whole project was a real team effort, with everybody giving 110%. For the last 4 weeks I have been working with staff, volunteers, the Wiltshire Conservation Service, Beaufort Bespoke and Bridport Town Council to get the collections back on display – thank you one and all for your help and support.
All great projects to work on and I am delighted to be continuing to support all three going forward.
