As all the 14 partner museums in the ACE and MiC-funded SWIM project will be aware, the two project officers, Mark Copley and Sarah Coleman, sadly left the County Council at the end of their contracts on 16 March. I’m sure all MiC members will join me in thanking them for doing such great work and for leaving the significant legacy in terms of improved resilience. The final evaluation report is currently being finalised and I will post it on the MiC web pages as soon as it is ready.
