Ros Westwood's retirement

Ros is retiring on 30 May 2024 after more than 25 years at Buxton Museum. We'd love it if you could send her a goodbye message and (optionally) contribute to a collection for a leaving gift.

Organiser

Sarah Chubb

It's been such a pleasure working with you over the last 12 years - you've been a truly inspiring manager at Buxton Museum and a lovely supportive colleague. Now go and enjoy a well earned and relaxing retirement!

Hi Ros, wishing you a happy retirement. I look back fondly on my time working with the museums in Derbyshire - you kept the forum going for so many years and really cared about those people which is what I will always remember about you. Well done on achieving so much at Buxton too and all very best wishes for what you do next.

Dear Ros. I have greatly enjoyed working with you and getting to know you better through shared life experiences. Your enthusiasm for Colin's exhibition, Quarried, and subsequent purchase of it for the museum meant so much to us both. We will manage that get together soon but meanwhile my love to you and my thanks.

THANK YOU so much Ros for everything you have done for our sector. You are such a passionate supporter of heritage, engagement and interpretation. Under your wonderful care, Buxton collections are continuing to inspire and amaze us decades (even centuries) after they were first collected. We will miss you. All the very best from me and the team.

Dear Ros You have been an inspiration to me since I came to Derbyshire 2003. I enjoyed exhibiting at the Art Gallery, and serving on the Buxton Spa Prize judging panel with you. I valued your invitation to do work on the School Library Service collection; this meant a lot during the isolation of the pandemic. You will be missed, hope to see you again!

It has been a joy working for you, Ros. Thank you for all your help and support over many years. You leave a wonderful legacy at Buxton. Much to be proud of and to celebrate. You and Freida can look forward to long walks on the Smalldale hills, and reeling in a prize-winning salmon from the Tweed in Coldstream. Love for a long and happy retirement XXXX

I was so sorry to hear about Ros's impending retirement. She made the Buxton Museum one of the finest local museums in the country, and was always most helpful and a willing and enthusiastic contributor to ACID magazine, which I edit. She will be sadly missed by the countless people she introduced to the history of our county.
