New Appointments to the Board of Trustees
The Shanklin Theatre & Community Trust Board has been busy recruiting new members. Two new Trustees/Directors were unanimously appointed at the Trust meeting held on 25th September 2019 and are very welcome additions to the team.
We welcome Sally and Michael Beston as newly appointed Trustees to the Board. They have both run a successful tourism business operating in the heart of Shanklin over the last 18 years. Sally is the current Chairman of the Shanklin Hotel and Accommodation Association; she is also a company Director for Visit Isle of Wight Ltd and has extensive knowledge of the Island’s tourism industry.
Michael is an elected member of Shanklin Town Council and an Isle of Wight County Councillor; he is the current Chairman of the Policy and Scrutiny committee for Neighbourhoods and Regeneration at County Hall. He has also served as Vice Chairman for the Friends of Shanklin Theatre for the last ten years and brings a wealth of theatre and community knowledge with him.
The Shanklin Theatre and Community Trust board has always looked to recruit individuals who bring useful skill sets and knowledge to the table; the Trustees all share a common interest that is the continuation of Shanklin Theatre as a local and Island wide valued community asset.
Anthony Wood – Vice Chairman and Company Secretary – September 2019.
