A new steering group has been formed to move the project forward. The members of the group are:-
Lord Norrie (Chairman)
Colin Carter Campbell
William Clark Maxwell
Keith Walker (teacher/schools liaison)
Graham Roberts (head D+G archivist)
Valentina Bold (director Solway Centre for Environment)
The idea is to always have 3-4 members on the group who will be landowners or their representatives. These are the first four on the list. Keith, Graham and Valentina are representatives for the educational sector. (Valentina has also nominated Dr. Matt Davies to stand in for her if she cannot make meetings.) The rest of the group will be made up of those who are interested in the project, whatever their background. It is expected that the total number will eventually be 11 with a further two co-opted as and when by the group.
If there is anyone that thinks that they can add something to this group by joining do let us know of your interest.
Our first meeting is due on the 20th March.
It is hoped that this group will meet 3-4 times per year and that it will act as a mentor and guide to the executive group who will try to push things forward on a more regular basis. The membership of this other group will be reviewed according to need.
Please feel free to contact any of the members of the steering group with ideas and information that may be useful to the project.
