I am delighted to be able to announce the name of the new Essex Museum Development Officer. Beth Wilkey will be taking up her post with Colchester and Ipswich Museums as the new Essex MDO on 1 June, having previously worked for the Powell Cotton Museum in Kent and the Royal College of Physicians. Her post is fully funded by SHARE Museums East and Museums Essex until March 2023. Beth will be working with museums throughout Essex providing information and advice, particularly in relation to museum Accreditation. More details will be available shortly on how to contact Beth and how she will be able to support Essex museums.
