Jayne Robb was suspended from her position as general manager on Thursday. On Friday the museum announced the role had been scrapped.

Grantham Museum has announced it has scrapped the role of general manager, formerly held by Jayne Robb.

The announcement comes after the museum yesterday took the decision to suspend Jayne Robb following stories printed in national newspapers and the BBC saying that Grantham had been offered a Maragret Thatcher statue.

The museum released a statement today saying: “We have been open 8 months and the time has now come to embark on a new and exciting phase for Grantham Museum.

“We have decided that the Museum no longer has a need for the role of a General Manager and would like to instead explore the option of recruiting a Collections Access Officer in order for us to progress with some exciting exhibits and projects we have in the pipeline.

“As such we have undertaken a review of our contracts and staffing needs accordingly.”
