Geoff is a retired teacher who, since leaving education has been joint landlord of the Black Bull at Lowick and, for the last two years a seasonal Guide at Bamburgh Castle. He said “I feel honoured to have been appointed as the new Curator of the Lady Waterford Hall. Although a hard act to follow, I hope to build on Dorien’s success and I ’m hoping my experience in education, in hospitality and in guiding will weld together and make me fit for purpose. I’m looking forward to the task ahead and know I have the support of Lady Joicey and Ford & Etal Estates. Above all, I’m working with a splendid team of colleagues at the Hall”.
