Collection Update

As the recruitment for the new Collections Manager is moving forwards, I have the absolute pleasure to support Rebecca (Assistant Collections Manager), Ollie and Stuart (Documentation Assistants) to look after the collections held in the store.
There’s been so many highlights in the short few weeks that I’ve been at the store so far from the people to the success of the AIM Pilgrim Trust to install RH/T digital loggers at the store to stumbling upon one of the treasures stored here.

My favourite so far are the two cheeky chappies looking at each other, grinning at the top of the stairs, as one points to the other. Though I’m not sure that sand and Ovaltine rusks would make a tasty combo. There’s lots of things to keep us busy at the store, and we hope, once space and COVID-restrictions allow, that we’ll be able to welcome more people back.


We ask that everyone’s patient with us, just a little longer.
