Museums in Cambridgeshire News no. 72 (18 November 2016)

Dear colleague

Here are this week’s news items:

  1. Burwell Museum has more items to dispose of; please see the attached list. Any museums interested in any of the items listed should please contact Burwell Museum on or 01638 605544.
  2. The Transformers scheme for mid-career museum professionals will open on 28 November. Details are at .
  3. Paid up members of MiC (but not the University Museums who have separate arrangements) are now covered by our Priority User Basic policy with Harwell Restoration’s disaster recovery services. I have the details of the services provided, many at discount prices, but the most important point is that members can call the 24-hour Hotline on 01235 434373 for 24/7 advice and support, quoting PU 1018. I am arranging for Emma Dadson of Harwell to come to explain these in detail in March 2017 (see next item).
  4. The Spring meeting of the Cambridgeshire Museums Forum will be at the Museum of Cambridge on the afternoon of Wednesday 8 March (details to follow nearer the time). The Forum still needs to find a new Secretary so you if you are interested in this role please contact me.
  5. The Museum of Cambridge is advertising for a Project Manager, closing date 2 December (see attached).

Best wishes
