Chair: Collections, Library and Archive Committee
I have worked in museums since 1997 on a national, regional and local level - as staff and as an unpaid volunteer, allowing me an insight into both sides of the sector. I studied Industrial Archaeology at postgraduate level and have been interested in vintage machinery and industrial history since childhood. away from work, I am Chairman of the National Traction Engine Trust and a school governor.
My remit as a Trustee is towards the conservation, care and display of the museum's rich collections - whether they be archive material or the engines themselves and we at LMWS are fortunate to have an experienced and talented team of both staff and volunteers who I greatly respect and enjoy working with.
Joining the Trustees in January 2014, I see my role as supporting the collections work and helping to maintain our accredited museum status, as well as developing the museum as a centre of excellence in displaying and interpreting industrial heritage with especial focus on stationary power and water supply.
