Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum

Trainer for King John's House Romsey.  This independent museum is seeking museum Accreditation.  I provided a series of bespoke training sessions for the museum staff, trustees & volunteers enabling them to understand and maintain minimum standards for collections management and care including documentation basics, marking, labelling and storage.

Project Manager for the new museum at The Spring, Havant.  Following the merger of Havant Museum and Havant Arts Centre the single site required redevelopment.  The integration of the 2 organisations included a major reconfiguration of the museum displays and resources area.  Managing the redevelopment of the new displays and co-ordinating with the Arts Centre team, the museum  now includes new vibrant galleries, all completed on time and on budget.

Volunteer Coordinator for Bursledon Brickworks Industrial Museum.  Following a major Heritage Lottery Grant, I have been setting up and managing the expansion of the volunteer team at this unique museum located near Southampton.  The museum has developed from being accessible to the public barely 12 days a year to nearly 90 days.  This volunteer run museum is in the process of becoming a major visitor attraction in Hampshire, providing modern displays and dynamic learning & events programme.
