Helen Ghosh takes over as National Trust Director-General

The National Trust’s new Director-General, Dame Helen Ghosh, spent her first day yesterday (Monday 12 November) meeting staff, volunteers and visitors at Chirk Castle and Powis Castle & Gardens in Wales.

She is embarking on a ‘listening tour’ of National Trust places where she’ll meet people involved at all different levels of the organisation to build her understanding of how the charity works.

“At both Chirk and Powis castles I found fantastic, energetic people,” said Helen. “It reminded me that this wonderful mosaic of staff, volunteers and visitors is what makes the Trust what it is.”

She takes over from Dame Fiona Reynolds who stepped down on Saturday (10 November) at the National Trust AGM after 12 years leading the organisation.
