New Staff at Chiswick House & Gardens
Three new members of staff have been recruited to the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust
Three new members of staff have been recruited to the Chiswick House and Gardens Trust thanks to the generous support of the Heritage Lottery Fund. Director of the Trust Sarah Finch-Crisp says, 'We are delighted to welcome Diane Schaefer, William Rallison and Louise Randall as Marketing Manager, Gardener and Volunteer Manager respectively and are immensely grateful to the HLF and Chiswick House Friends for supporting these posts. To have this additional expertise and capacity in the Trust team is a tremendous boost.'
After a successful 2011 which saw the launch of Britain's first Camellia Festival, the Trust is gearing up for an exciting event filled 2012 and the new staff members have plenty to prepare for. The 2nd Chiswick House Camellia Festival begins on 18 February and promises a spectacular display. Later in the year there will be some Olympic inspired surprises alongside our popular regular events of lectures, concerts, children's theatre and gardening celebrations. Meanwhile the landscape and planting continues to be enhanced including Chiswick's famous 19th Century Italian Garden in front of the Conservatory, under the direction of the Trust's Head Gardener Fiona Crumley alongside new Gardener William and volunteers.
The Volunteers continue to play a vital role at Chiswick House and Gardens. The Trust's latest recruit Louise says, 'Having spent many happy hours over the years visiting Chiswick House and wandering through its beautiful gardens, I am delighted to have joined the team as Volunteer Manager. The volunteers make a tremendously important contribution to the management of the House and Gardens and I look forward to meeting as many of them as possible over the coming weeks and to supporting and developing the Volunteer Service.'
