The Guildford Institute has a special place in the heart of the local community, having proudly stood on Ward Street in the town centre for 125 years. It is a unique venue where people of all ages and backgrounds can get together and take part in cultural and educational activities.
After a recent period of change, Sandra Robinson, Chairperson of the Board of Trustees, is delighted to announce that Amy Rice has been appointed as the Manager of the Guildford Institute. Sandra is confident that “Amy will step into the role of Manager with passion, enthusiasm, knowledge, skill and a fresh approach.”
Before joining the Institute, Amy achieved a First Class Honours degree in psychology from University College London. She has previously been involved with several other charities including Children of the Mekong, Phyllis Tuckwell and Age UK.
Amy began working at the Guildford Institute in January 2014 as the Membership and Marketing Assistant, where she succeeded in building up strong relationships with the Institute’s members and regular attendees. She was later promoted to the Deputy Manager post in October 2015. In this role, Amy was responsible for the Institute’s adult education programme and has been visionary in developing the Institute’s course offering.
As the newly-appointed Manager, Amy is particularly keen to increase the visibility of the Institute within the town and strengthen current links with other local organisations. The Guildford Institute tel: 01483 562142
