Tim Lankester is the new chair of the board of trustees of Wells Malt­ings Trust, the gov­ern­ing body of Wells-next-the-Sea’s new £5m cen­tre for arts, her­itage and com­mu­nity.

Tim, who lives in Wells, is a long-time sup­porter of the arts and joins the board at a piv­otal time for the town’s ex­cit­ing cul­tural devel­op­ment, with ma­jor re­fur­bish­ment and ex­ten­sion work on the Malt­ings site near­ing com­ple­tion. It plans to open its doors to the pub­lic in the late spring.

“I am tremen­dously ex­cited by the won­der­ful new cen­tre and what it will have to of­fer for ev­ery­one in Wells and in neigh­bour­ing com­mu­ni­ties and for our many visitors,” says Tim, who takes over the chair from Peter Lynn.

General man­ager Si­mon Daykin adds, “Our key aim is to es­tab­lish and sus­tain the Malt­ings as a thriv­ing, wel­com­ing and vi­brant place for ev­ery­one to enjoy and call their own: Tim’s pas­sion, com­mit­ment, knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence can help us to do just that.” www.wells­malt­ings.org.uk
