New Chair and Trustees for LAHF

LAHF is delighted to announce the election of a new permanent Chair of the board. Judith Mellor has extensive experience of governance in the arts, disability and social sectors. She was previously Chair of Northampton Theatres and a trustee of The Bush and Graeae. Two other trustees have also joined the board, Stephen Sandford is Strategic Lead & Professional Head of Arts Therapies at East London NHS Foundation Trust and Leah Zakks, Music Programme Manager for the British Council. All three will make a great contribution to LAHF’s plans and strategic direction in the coming years. This also presents an opportunity to thank Beth Elliott who has served for the past eighteen months as an interim Chair of the organisation. Beth will not be leaving the board but will continue as a trustee. Full details of all of the LAHF board can be found here.
