Partners in Town June 2017: All change at Wayland House
- Credit: Archant
One month on and we have a new team in place ready to start work at Wayland House on July 1.
Richard Otterway will be our new, full-time development manager.
He will continue the work of both Suzanne and Susan, developing and supporting projects, liaising with partners, writing bids and managing events and exhibitions including those already planned - such as the Wayland Show, the jobs fair and a tourism conference all scheduled for 2017. He will be busy!
Richard moved to Watton just over a year ago. He has been working for a large national charity, based in Surrey.
Charlotte Howard will be our administrative assistant. This is a new part-time role and Charlotte will be the first point of contact for visitors and callers to Wayland House.
She will look after the tenants and virtual tenants, help with events and projects and ensure the smooth running of the office and building.
Charlotte moved with her family from Bedfordshire to Watton a few years ago and has been working in Dereham.

On June 1, the staff and trustees were honoured and delighted to receive the Rotary Club of Watton’s Vocational Service Award for 2017, which was accepted on behalf of the Wayland Partnership by long-serving trustee, Roger Harrold.
Over the years the partnership has received a number of awards for our work but recognition from within the community we serve is really special.
In September, at the request of some small businesses who feel isolated and invisible, we will be hosting a Small Business Showcase at the Queens Hall to enable small local businesses to promote what they do to other businesses and the community.
Provided there is enough interest to go ahead, the event will take place on September 13 from 5pm to 8pm.
Interested businesses should email firstname.lastname@example.org. We already have a beautician, an accountant and a chimney sweep signed up.
