Colin Giles Retires as Curator of The Pen Room

Colin receives the presentation of a cheque from Larry Hanks as a token of Colin’s dedication to The Pen Room.

Brian Jones, (who tragically died just after his book about the history of ‘Pens’ was launched), initially depended on the strong support of his friend Colin Giles to make his dream come true to create a Pen Museum in the Jewellery Quarter.

The hard work of Colin, and other volunteers, has succeeded in creating an award winning museum and Colin’s dependable efforts as a tirelessly working volunteer will be very much missed, by his friends and colleagues.

Colin has been Curator of the museum for some time but has now decided to resign.

We will however still be seeing Colin around the Quarter as he has a great interest in the Cemeteries and other research!
