Museums in Cambridgeshire News no. 137 (26 July 2018)

Dear colleague

Firstly, please find attached the minutes of the MiC meeting held at Peterborough on 13 July. It is hoped to hold the next meeting Cambridge in November.

Secondly, I am delighted to attach the guidelines and application form for the 2018-2019 small grants scheme. The criteria have not changed, but the dates have. Unlike recent years, this year the deadline for applications is about one month earlier so that projects can be completed in the current financial year. The deadline is 1 October 2018.

Here is this week’s other news from around our museums (and one from Suffolk):

  1. University of Cambridge Museums are advertising for a Programme Coordinator, closing date 19 August (see attached).
  2. The National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art, Palace House, Palace Street, Newmarket is advertising for a Business Turnaround Manager, closing date 29 July (see attached).
  3. SHARE has a new list of subscribers to their bulletin. Are you on the list? If not, go to the bottom of our home page and sign up. They are aware that the bulletin often goes into junk folders (and they’re trying to fix it), so check there first if you think you have signed up but don’t recall seeing it.
