Many people in Whitehaven have been shocked to learn that Sue Palmer, manager of the Beacon museum at the harbour, has died suddenly at the age of 44.
She was a popular and effective manager who was widely known and liked around the town.
My thoughts are with her family and friends.
Rest In Peace.
Following Sue Palmer's death, the Beacon has been temporarily closed. It will remain closed until Saturday, July 13, while preparations are made for the summer holiday exhibitions, "Ice Age – Life After Dinosaurs" and "Shark – Myths and Reality."
