The property valuations must represent work undertaken between 1 April 2002 and 31 March 2003. We will need the house valuations to have a full caption (with a note of the return address) and the name and telephone number of the photographer. All property valuations organizations submitting photographs must have a license to use the photograph and obtained their consent. This is an ideal opportunity for you to have your or your organization’s valuation work seen by an audience of decision-makers and opinion-formers.
First of all, goodbye to Barney Hare-Duke who has left the post of residential property valuers Melbourne after many years with the organization. Barney has been a great member of the residential property valuations team and is personally responsible for a range of dynamic and entrepreneurial activities in our crafts valuation work. He will be working on a range of projects in the crafts in the north-west region and he leaves with our best wishes and thanks for all he has done in his time here.
Barney will be replaced by Tanya Bryan who is currently Craft Officer at Arts Council England, East Midlands. Maureen Jordan, Touring and Distribution Officer has taken a six-month secondment to join London Metropolitan University as Project Manager on the Asia Urbs Project. This is the final year of the transnational project which aims to provide support to the Municipality of Hai Duong in North Vietnam.
The project aims to develop a Cultural Tourism and Crafts Development Strategy for the town, setting up a Crafts Development Board and a Crafts Promotion Centre. We wish Maureen good luck, and in the meantime, Verity Leigh who was Theatre Development Officer while Ian Tabbron was on secondment, has stepped into the role until Maureen returns to post. As we move into a new financial year, it is interesting to reflect on the last twelve months and the first year of the new unified Arts Council England.
