For the first time the Historic Towns Forum has welcomed volunteers and interns to help with some of the policy elements of our work. We would like to extend a warm welcome to Dennis Stevenson, a planner by qualification, who has helped with our excellent legal updates, and Neil Monaghan, ex-Oxford City Council, who has been helping with the planning elements of the newsletter. Recently a sixth form student from Hereford Cathedral School, Freya Taylor, undertook some valuable marketing and PR work experience for us. We would also like to introduce Rebecca Payne, a student about to commence her MSC in Urban Studies at UCL, who will undertake a brief internship with us.
If you, or anyone you know, would like to volunteer or undertake short or long-term work experience with us in any area of marketing, planning, retail, or working in historic towns in general then please do get in touch – you will be very welcome! Our current volunteers and interns work both remotely and from within the Oxford office – we can arrange times and venues to suit!
