A message from the Chair,
I consider it a great privilege and honour to Chair the Wentworth Woodhouse Preservation Trust, not because the house is one of the finest and grandest in the country, nor because it is arguably the greatest restoration project for a generation. It is a privilege because it allows me to work with, to meet and to engage with staff and volunteers who never fail to impress me with their dedication to the task in hand and their determination of spirit. On behalf of the Board of Trustees I thank you all.
This review references the “small but dedicated masterplanning team” that worked tirelessly over the last 12 months to deliver the full masterplan, but the reality is that over 1500 people have contributed to this process in some way. Experienced site operators and management teams, our neighbours, members of the South Yorkshire community, our stakeholders. Their help, input, advice and assistance in the masterplanning process has proved invaluable and enabled the Trustees to consider a variety of options and make informed decisions.
The Trust is truly blessed to have so many people who want to see us succeed and who want to help us. But we need more, including funders if we are to accomplish our mission.
The Masterplan is the start of this exciting journey. We truly believe that this project is a catalyst for change for the people whose lives we touch in some way. The communities we serve, our staff, volunteers, our visitors and supporters.
