I hope this finds you all very well. I am writing this edition of the newsletter on the very day that Steven is saying farewell to the Holburne for Pastures new. Over the last 4 years Steven has been at the heart of everything we do at the Museum and will leave a huge gap in our team. His new adventures are both exciting and inspiring and although we are sad to see him move on, we wish him nothing but success, happiness and good fortune for him and his family in their new life in Switzerland .
Thank you all so much for all your work on our Canaletto exhibition. During our opening weeks we have seen more than 1800 people visit both the Roper and Wirth galleries to see Canaletto’s stunning paintings. Thank you so much for making everyone so welcome and informed.
Its definitely the summer holiday season at the Museum with many of you escaping to warmer climbs or seeing family and friends. This of course has left us incredibly short, especially at the weekends. If any of you could perhaps have another look at the rotas to see if you would be able to help out with an extra shift or two we would be eternally grateful.
Some of you may have noticed a new member of the Holburne Staff team. Sophie Bristol has joined us as our new Adult Learning officer. Sophie has spent the last week taking in everything at the Holburne and getting to grips with her new role . Once she has settled and absorbed everything I am sure she will introduce herself to you all.
Keep up all the great work guys, Trip Advisor has been jam packed with glowing comments about you all. Long may that continue.
Thank you all so much
Spencer, Joshua, Charlie, Ben and for the final time
