Tamworth Castle and Collections Conservation Management Plan

What more can I say that hasn't already been said about Marion. She was recommended to me by a former Museum colleague and by contacts at English Heritage, and I can say that she did not fail to live up to these recommendations. Marion has worked on the production of a Conservation Management Plan for Tamworth Castle, which was part of the Development Phase of a HLF bid. The resulting plan was a fantastic piece of work; to the point, easy to read and assimilate, and just screamed quality. The plan brought together all aspects of our work at Tamworth Castle – it outlined both the immediate objectives to preserve the building, and included interpretive ideas to improve what we deliver. The inclusion of a gazetteer gave us a simple and accessible historical breakdown of a complex Castle building, and we have used it to shed light on our period room displays for the benefit of the public. Marion is a fantastic champion for heritage, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable which does not fail to win people round and garner support when it is needed. Her work on our HLF project has now resulted in us achieving a final successful HLF bid which is due to commence in September 2011. On a personal level Marion has been both mentor and friend. She has been there as a sounding board and has continued her link with us all at Tamworth Castle beyond the initial project, never failing to point us in the right direction when needed. I loved working with her and hope to do so again soon.
