Who’s Who At QSS?
John Walker was elected Chair of the Queen Street School Preservation Trust in March, succeeding Ian Wolseley. The Vice-Chairs are Jim Robertson and Jenny Watson. The Secretary of the Trust’s Management Board, the Council of Management, is Keith Ready, and the Treasurer is Max Withrington. The good progress made would not have been possible without their support and that of other Council members.
The Project Subcommittee which is managing the restoration project is chaired by John French. Jenny Watson minutes these meetings and Carol Thornton word-processes these for distribution , as she also does for the Council meetings. The Trust is grateful to Carol and Voluntary Action North Lincolnshire, and to North Lincolnshire Council, for their support.
Ian Wolseley was appointed as Development Officer in February. Ian works full time for the Trust and has been mainly focussing on the building project and funding but will be devising and managing the School’s activities. He is the public point of contact for the Trust.
Former civil engineer Jim Wilson has been appointed as Assistant Development Officer (Construction Project). The post is part time and Jim will advise the Trust on construction matters during the building phase and liaise with the contractor and architect.
Friends of Queen Street School, chaired by Anthony Berridge, continues
the work of the Trust. A growing number
of Friends have
offered their help as volunteers.
