Alison BaileyAt the recent Trustees’ meeting, Alison Bailey was appointed into the new role of Vice Chair.  Alison’s been volunteering at Amersham Museum for over 10 years, and is the longest serving Trustee on the current Board. She’s involved with many areas of the museum including our Age Friendly Programme, access and inclusion, research, writing articles for the website and stewarding. She also leads walks and give talks on women’s history and architecture.  She wrote the museum’s publication Women at War, and has a regular social history column in the Bucks Free Press.

You can find out more about the whole Board on our new Meet the Team webpage with details and photos of trustees. You can see it here:

The Board also agreed a new forward plan for 2024 to 2027, with detailed aims, objectives and actions for the next three years. This includes a brand new vision statement for the museum which encapsulates its direction and ambition: Amersham Museum brings local history to life to inspire, surprise and engage people, helping them to explore the significance of the area’s past, appreciate the present, and imagine the future.

The meeting also heard that the fund established to mark previous Chair, Gary Gotch’s retirement, has reached nearly £2000. The fund will be used by the Museum to contribute to public-facing events and activities, enabling us to enhance what we can offer for visitors and ensure its high quality.
