A warm welcome to our newest member of the team!
We are delighted to welcome Tonia Collett to the Birmingham Conservation Trust team. Tonia joins us as our Volunteer and Operations Manager for the Coffin Works. Tonia comes with a strong background in museums and tourism, having spent the last 10 years at the Almonry Heritage Centre in Evesham, and five of those years heading up operations. Tonia is also a trustee of Chedham’s Yard in Warwickshire and loves her industrial heritage as much as we do!
I asked Tonia to share a few thoughts on her new job:
“I’m really pleased to be joining the Newman Brothers team during their first year! This is such an exciting venture and one that will have a huge positive impact on the heritage industry in Birmingham. I’m looking forward to getting to know everyone and being a part of the team telling the story of Newman Brothers and its role in shaping Birmingham’s social and industrial heart.”
