It’s been a busy few weeks planning the Heritage Awards but it’s all coming together nicely.
We’re delighted to announce that this year’s event will be held at The Collection on June 22nd, with many thanks to Lincolnshire County Council for their support. Invitations will be distributed this week.
This morning I met with Anita Hollinshead who was setting off to visit the award candidates with judges David Sleight and Emma Tatlow. Simon Davies (Museum Consultant and Freelance Curator (and formerly the Regional Accreditation Officer for the East Midlands)) has replaced Rod Whiting, who had to drop out, and we’re all very grateful to him for stepping in at the last minute!
Also, huge thanks to those of you that promoted entries to the Heritage Awards via various methods, we’ve got a fantastic selection for the judges to choose from; I’m certain they’ll have a hard decision to make.
I will be live tweeting from the event on June 22nd, so follow @LincsMuseums for details of the winners and runners up, plus some on-the-night gossip! #lincsheritageawards
Stay tuned for more details.
Heather, Committee Secretary
