"I've really loved learning how to catalogue collections and have thoroughly enjoyed my time working there – I'd also like to thank you for the time you've invested in me as I am in no doubt that my experience gained from the Pen Museum was a big factor in me getting my job at Nuneaton M&AG. I hope that in the future, I'll be able to come in and help out from time to time and I'll be back as a visitor no doubt! Ellie Ball 2013"
