Regional Award for our Curator

Regional Award for our Curator

SHARE Museums East instigated a Volunteers Award in 2015 and all organisations in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambs, Beds and Herts were able to nominate candidates for an award in 7 different categories. We nominated Nicola, Jennifer, Claudia and our Museum Stewards Team.

On the evening of Thursday 4 June 2015, five of us went to Bury St Edmunds for the awards ceremony. There were 88 nominations in total and we are delighted to report that Nicola was Highly Commended (2nd) in her category: Volunteer Management. This was the judge’s citation:

“Highly Commended: Nicola Sherhod, The John Bunyan Museum and Library, Bedford. The judges were very impressed with the way that Nicola had empowered the volunteers to take an increasingly full part in the life of the museum, to mutual benefit.”

Congratulations Nicola. Very well deserved.
