Friends and colleagues at Gloucestershire Archives gathered to wish Julie Courtenay all the very best for her retirement at the end of March. Julie came for her archives job interview on the day the Record Office opened in Alvin Street in 1979. Since then she has contributed significantly to the development of the service, to change and innovation, and importantly to the collections. As a well respected colleague, she will be very much missed.
Julie has handed over the baton to Claire Collins who will be leading the next phase of collections development. Good luck Claire.
