He writes: “I have been a member of ICOMOS-UK for a number of years and have had discussions with the Secretary and Committee to ensure that the recently successful Pontcysyllte Nomination followed best practice: I would like to help to apply this elsewhere in the UK. I have initiated liaison groups in Welsh archaeology and architecture. I run European projects underpinning cultural tourism and pioneering the use of digital interpretation and animations which help to extend Pride of Place to previously inaccessible audiences. I would seek to help provide training on these in the short term and promote their wider use in the long term”.
