Heritage manager appointed to All Saints Ilkley
All Saints Ilkley are delighted to announce the appointment of Carry Lynott as Heritage Manager.
Carry’s role will cover all aspects of the exciting heritage plan in progress at All Saints Ilkley, which will tell, and interpret, the story of the church and its people from the times of the Roman Fort, through the life of the medieval and Victorian eras, right up to the current 21st-Century renovation works. This includes working with artists and writers, architects and designers, as well as various voluntary roles. New resources are being prepared, including digital experiences as well as written material.
Over the next two years there will be a wide range of activities for the community including a “memories project”, and opportunities for all ages to engage with the heritage of our community and our church.
Carry comes to All Saints from a successful background in teaching and learning, and with a life-long passion for history and archaeology. She lives, worships and has worked locally.
The Heritage Manager position is a funded post with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and All Saints Ilkley look forward to Carry joining the team in mid-September. Derek Twine, Development Coordinator at All Saints said: “We are really excited by Carry’s appointment. We have a richness of heritage legacy at All Saints, and this role will help us make it come alive for our community here in Ilkley, the region and beyond.”
Carry said “I am thrilled to have been appointed as the Heritage Manager at All Saints. I am really looking forward to being part of an exciting project that offers so many opportunities to highlight the important role that the parish church of All Saints plays in Ilkley’s Heritage Story. “
