The Architectural Heritage Fund is seeking a new Chair to replace the outgoing Liz Peace CBE, who is stepping down after 3 terms in the role.
Liz Peace commented: ‘It is with great sadness I will be leaving AHF later this year. It has always been a charity that has funded and supported such excellent projects - only last week the Board and I were looking at a number of projects in Edinburgh that had benefitted from our early-stage grants, advice and loans to help them deliver the reuse of historic buildings. It really brought home to me again the rewarding nature of being Chair, along with the breadth and impact of our work.
AHF is one of the UK’s longest standing funder of heritage-led regeneration projects, but it is a dynamic charity with a strong Board and forward-looking team of people behind it. It is always looking to see how the reuse of historic buildings can meet contemporary challenges, whether that is the future of the high street in towns like Great Yarmouth or how heritage assets can contribute to place making in rural villages in Northern Ireland. It is that mix of social and heritage impact that makes it unique.
As it approaches its 50th anniversary in a few years’ time, this is a great opportunity to take on the role of Chair with the AHF, particularly for someone with a significant track record in place-making, property, funding or social enterprise.”
