We are pleased to announce the appointment of a new Communications Manager for Creswell Crags. Rebecca Morris-Buck will be joining the team in mid-June and will be heading a new department with a focus on marketing, PR, fundraising, exhibitions, events, and volunteering. With so many exciting areas of work falling under her remit, Rebecca will be supported by Campaigns Officer, Katie Smith. Rebecca brings with her a strong reputation for creativity in the delivery of heritage programmes, especially those focused-on engagement, and has a record of success in volunteer management, community networking, and special events.
Rebecca is well known within the heritage sector. She understands the industry at every level, having worked front of house, in education delivery and planning, and in project management for funded roles, as well as in roles focused on community participation and collections, with the majority of her experience at the National Justice Museum in Nottingham, and Erewash Museum in Ilkeston. She also writes for Museums Journal, Left Lion, and other cultural magazines and blogs. Most recently, she has been a member of the Alumni Relations team at Nottingham Trent University, coordinating a large-scale volunteering and engagement scheme. In addition, Rebecca is a published novelist and has been involved in creative writing events and workshops in the local area.
Change is in the air at Creswell Crags, making this a very exciting time to welcome Rebecca. We are attracting more visitors, including those discovering us for the first time, and working to spread the word about our fantastic site to our wider region, and beyond. The discovery of the largest collection of Witch Marks in the UK offers us an opportunity to attract even more visitors – as a registered charity, this expansion is crucial to us. Rebecca will be a champion for our heritage, and our visitor experience, regionally and nationally. We eagerly await her arrival and more exciting developments.
We wish Rebecca every success as she joins our dedicated team, motivated to transform our reputation and ensure that Creswell Crags is known for its unique heritage, stunning natural beauty, and outstanding visitor experience by the widest possible audience, who will come to visit us again and again, securing a bright future for our site. Please join us in wishing Rebecca – and the whole team – good luck as we embark on this journey together.
