Chair steps down from board

David Burling, Chair of Grantham Museum, has announced his decision to step down from the role on 17th July 2020.

David, who has been on the board of the Museum since 2016, says “It’s with great sadness that I am stepping down, however after leading the organisation through the recent closure and as the Museum prepares for re-opening, now is the right time to hand over the reigns to the new leadership to further develop the experience the Museum has to offer”.

“During my time with the Museum we have re-developed the online experience, made progress with the Margaret Thatcher statue project and established the Museum podcast “The Betty Elmer Archive”. We are also on a much stronger financial footing ready to take on the challenges that will undoubtably come in the future months. I’m looking forward to how these projects continue and what new experiences the team has in store for 2020 and beyond”.

Grantham Community Heritage Association, the organisation that runs Grantham Museum, will be holding their AGM in September 2020 and a new chair will be appointed then.
