I joined the Maeldune Heritage Centre as a volunteer in September 2019 as a volunteer and as manager in February 2019. It is a pleasure and privilege to assist the Maeldune Trust in keeping the story of the Maldon Embroidery and local history alive as proud custodians.
The Craft shop is a vibrant welcome to visitors as they enter the Centre thanks to the local artists who provide unique, handmade items for the shelves.
The exhibition hall is an eclectic space to promote local arts and crafts.
There is a wealth of local history to share with visitors, in particular the story of the Maldon Embroidery and St. Peter’s Tower.
The Centre is volunteer led and as manager it is very rewarding to work with an enthusiastic and dedicated team of Craft shop volunteers and Maldon Ambassadors to make our visitors welcome.
The duties as manager are varied, working with the Trustees, Town Hall and Heritage Group to promote local history and ensure the objectives, aims and vision of the Trust are met.
