All Change at Lady Waterford Hall!

|| || ||

After 15 years as Curator at Lady Waterford Hall, Dorien Irving has moved on to pastures new. The new curator, Geoff Bavidge, who lives in Ford Village, took the reins when the Hall opened for the 2016 season on 20th March.

Dorien was presented with gifts and flowers from Lady Joicey and members of staff from the Hall and from Ford & Etal Estates.  Thanking everyone for their kindness she added “I have loved every minute of my time at the Hall and in many respects will be sad to leave. It has been a fantastic experience and I have met some wonderful people along the way. I wish Geoff every success in his new post – and of course as I am still living in the village I will be able to pop in and see him and his team from time to time”.

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”.
