I hope that this all finds you well.
We have some sad news for the Holburne but some fantastic news for one of our Duty Manager team.
Georgie will be leaving us on 28 February this year as she moves on to London to a wonderful new job as Philatelic Assistant at the British Postal Museum. Georgie started her career here at the Holburne as a Volunteer back in 2011. She then went on to become a freelance duty manager before being made a full time member of our team. We are all really going to miss Georgie but we wish her all the luck in the world in her new position.
We will of course be holding a leaving party for Georgie on Friday 27 February at 5.30pm here in the Garden café. If you would like to come down and wish her well, please RSVP to Spencer or email email@example.com
Georgie’s position is now being advertised and if you would like to apply you can do so by downloading the application and information forms at www.holburne.org from Monday 2 February. The closing date for applications is the 16 February and Interviews will take place on Friday 20 February.
Our new exhibition opens at the end of this month so the Roper will be closed from 17 - 27 February. Please do check the rota as we do have to reduce the number of volunteers during this period as we would hate for you to be here for no reason.
There is also an addition to our training diary on the 25 February. Scroll down to read more or CLICK HERE
The next rota is now up so please do take a good look at these to avoid any last minute cancellations.
Plans are underway for our fabulous summer programme.
Canaletto: Celebrating Britain will open at the end of June as will an incredible outdoor installation by Laura Ellen Bacon. We will be posting up some of her previous work in the tea house so you can get a better understanding of her work. Its going to look amazing.
Nicholas Rena will also be installing his work on the Ballroom table from 21 March. Catrin will be delivering a talk about this on Monday 23 March at 2.30pm so please do sign up for this by letting your Duty manager know on shift or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
The B&NES Chairman and Community Awards took place on Thursday 29 January. A few lucky Volunteer had the opportunity to go along. We did not win best volunteer team in BANES this year. There was some very stiff competition. You should all be very proud of yourselves for the nomination and all the hard work you do. The Volulnteers that did go along had a good time (see below)
Thank you for everything you do for us
Spencer, Steven, Georgie and Josh
