Latest news - Yard appoints new Heritage Project Officer

Chedham’s Yard Trust has appointed Deborah Hext as Heritage Project Officer for the next 12 months. Deborah has worked in the heritage industry for 6 years in a variety of roles for the National Trust at Snowshill Manor, Chastleton House, Chedworth Roman Villa and Upton House. In 2011 she relocated to Devon to work for the National Trust at Buckland Abbey, Garden & Estate as ‘Visitor Services Officer’ overseeing the events & education programme and increasing visitor engagement. In 2012 she was promoted to ‘Visitor Experience Manager’ and was responsible for increasing their offer for schools through the introduction of a Forest School as well as improving the overall visitor experience.  

During her year at Chedham's Yard Deborah hopes to continue the development of the education programme and tap into this sustainable market, helping to boost visitor numbers and revenue.    She intends to continue growing support for the site and leave the team at the end of her 12 months in the best position possible to continue as a purely voluntary run operation.
