We said goodbye to Heritage Services boss Stephen Bird a short while ago and now l hear the Roman Baths and Pump Room manager Stephen Clews is also set to retire at the end of the year.
His successor has been appointed. I am told she’s Amanda Hart who is currently the Director of the Corinium Museum in Cirencester. She will take up her new role in January next year.
Amanda told Bath Newseum:
“I am really looking forward to taking up the post in the New Year, meeting the entire team and finding out what goes on behind the scenes at the beautiful Roman Baths. I am excited about sharing my enthusiasm about Roman collections and my archaeological interests, which will bring a new perspective to the stories that we will be able to tell.”
More on this story when l get it. Stephen Clews has had a long and illustrious career here in Bath and will be missed!
