1985/10Bulletin / October 1985Departures / It is with regret that we have to let you know of a recent departure and another one within the next few months. Firstly, as part of the campaign to reduce the cost of running the Museum, Val Price left us at the end of September. Val came to the Museum Office at a time when it required formalising and putting on a footing much more in line with the level of activity which then existed at the Museum. This contribution to the Museum was considerable, if largely hidden. I am sure that over the time Val has been with us, most of you will have appreciated this important contribution and will join with me in wishing her all the best for the future.

At the end of the year John Friar will be retiring. He was one of the first members of the Museum staff and has been involved in most of the stone and brick projects over the years and, in particular, has been responsible for some of the large moving operations that have been undertaken, the Redford Roundhouse being an example.
