Museums in Cambridgeshire News no. 152 (26 November 2018)

Dear colleague

 

There was a very interesting presentation by Jamie Everitt on Cambridgeshire museums’ benchmarking results, at this morning’s MiC AGM at Kettle’s Yard. Jamie handed out copies of the printed report but I have taken most of them to distribute to MiC members. Please let me know if you would like copies so that I can get them to you.

Those who were present this morning will have heard me explain that after six years as MPO I shall be leaving at Christmas, as I am moving to Manchester. There will be a break in the mailing of MiC News after I leave, but I hope it will be resumed as soon as my successor is in post.
