What does your role at QT involve? “I will be overseeing all the work that the museum does and making sure that visitors get a great experience. The museum has a brilliant team of staff, who I will be supporting and working closely with as we develop and grow the work of the Quaker Tapestry Museum. The previous General Manager, Bridget Guest, has done an amazing job running the Quaker Tapestry Museum, particularly during the challenges that the pandemic brought, and I hope to continue to help the museum to survive and thrive.”

What are your plans for QT? “The Quaker Tapestry Museum already does lots of great work with the local community. The Flood Tapestry project was a great example of this. I plan to develop on this work building connection with the local community and schools. I am also keen to develop the museum’s work tackling the issue of climate change. Awareness building and creating a more sustainable organisation.”
