We are delighted to announce that Jessica Evans joined the Board of Trustees in November shortly before our opening.

She studied Business and French at the University of Chester, during which time she spent a year living in France attending University and teaching English. She now works for a large retailer as a Project Manager and has also run a gender-based Diversity and Inclusion initiative.

She is passionate about giving a voice to the most marginalised in our community and encouraging a love of literature in the younger generation.”
