Lynn passes the baton to new team at Kielder

The Trust that oversees the ongoing development of one of the North East's leading tourist destinations has introduced a new management structure following the retirement of its Director.

Lynn Turner has handed leadership of the Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust over to a team seconded from organisations within the partnership.

Alongside new Director, Graham Perry, who has been seconded part-time from his role as Strategy and Product Development Manager at Northumbrian Water, are:

  • Operations Manager Paul Nichol, a full-time secondee from Northumberland County Council
  • Recreation and Events Manager Alex MacLennan, seconded part-time from Forestry England.

The team continue to be supported by Administration Assistant Jane Anderson and Building Capacity Project Co-ordinator Hilary Norton, seconded from Northumbrian Water and Northumberland Wildlife Trust respectively. Peter Sharpe remains curator of the Kielder Art & Architecture programme.

Graham said: "Lynn's work as Director of the Kielder Water & Forest Park Development Trust in recent years has seen the area continue to go from strength to strength as a destination, and even step into an exciting new digital age, which we look forward to seeing come to fruition in the coming months.

"The Partners within the Trust would like to thank Lynn for her leadership and commitment and wish her well in her retirement.

"I'm really looking forward to the challenge ahead and I know the rest of the team feel the same, and it's great to have a number of the Partners so actively involved in the new structure."
