Joy and some of her helpers

Our Exhibitions Officer is returning home…

My last day at the office and before I leave for new pastures, I wanted to write to you all. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at the museum. Over the years, I have been part of creating some wonderful exhibitions (British Art: Ancient Landscapes, John Craxton: A Poetic Eye, John Hinchcliffe) and met some lovely and interesting people. I will be sad not to see Henry Lamb: Out of the Shadows going up in our gallery but I will definitely will come and see it when it is finished!

A special thanks to Christine Mason, David Chilton and Bob Hambling for always helping me with painting and setting up the exhibition.

My new job will be as Heritage Coordinator for the Lower Campine Region in Belgium. It is for an organisation that helps city councils with heritage related issues and questions. A bit like English Heritage but Belgian Heritage. One of my first projects will be around Celtic Field systems and opening them to the public. This is very exciting as I did a lot of research on prehistoric field systems and did my dissertation on Celtic Field systems in particular.

It will be nice to live closer to my family but I will miss the UK and all my friends. It has become my second home.

I wish the museum all the best of luck for the exciting future coming up.

All best, Joy

Very best wishes Joy.  You will be missed.
