I am delighted and very excited to announce that Paul Bowman of Haltwhistle has accepted an invitation to join the Board of Trustees for the Twhistle CIC t/a the Whistle Art Stop. Paul brings a vast amount of business experience with him and great enthusiasm for the arts. Paul is currently the General Manager for the North Europe Area of Konica Minolta Sensing Division – the worlds leading supplier of colour and light measurement equipment and 3D scanning systems.

Paul joins myself and Andrew Crane as Board members and we are very much looking forward to announcing events and projects as a result of our work together. Along with our growing number of supporting artists who will deliver the projects and two new arts graduates will also soon be joining the team.

This is an exciting time for the Whistle Art Stop.

We will be announcing the appointment of another Board member very shortly but still have vacancies for three more Trustees. We are particularly looking for legal skills, experience in fundraising and grant and are keen to bring on board at least one more artist who has the same passion for art in the community as we do.

Please contact me (Alison Raimes) on 01434 320800 or 07803 208161 for more information.
