Gordon Barr, who has been Heritage Development Manager at Maryhill Burgh Halls for the last four years, is moving on at the start of June 2014. He takes up a new role as Projects Officer for the Architectural Heritage Fund, with a geographical remit taking in the whole of Scotland and Northern England. Local projects the AHF has previously supported at various stages of their development include the Kelvingrove Bandstand, and Cottiers Theatre.
Gordon said: “I’m sad to be leaving Maryhill after four fantastic years, and I’m really proud of all that has been achieved here - we’ve had over 6,000 people involved in over 170 different heritage related activities since 2010 - plus over 1,600 downloads of our free Maryhill Heritage Trails App. I’m looking forward to seeing how my successor at Maryhill builds on this to take things forward for the future.”
