I was appointed in September 2014 as Community & Heritage Training Officer for the Morecambe Bay Partnership’s Landscape Partnership Scheme entitled 'Headlands to Headspace. I have a heritage background and have worked for the last 15 years in the Museums sector in curatorial or management roles in the North West. Most recently I was the Manager of Lancaster Maritime Museum where I developed a great interest in Morecambe Bay. I have ways worked closely with volunteers in my career and delivered a wide range of community heritage projects including exhibitions, workshops, research initiatives, oral history projects and hands-on activities for everyone from the over 90s to the under 5s.
