A warm welcome to Sarah

We're delighted to announce the arrival of Sarah Mason who has started work as the new Chief Executive of Morecambe Bay Partnership.

Welcome to our new Chief Executive

As one chapter closes, another begins. We're thrilled to welcome Sarah who has started work at the Partnership - the start of a new era building on Susannah Bleakley's legacy.

“I’m thrilled to be the CEO of the Partnership and to start a new chapter living and working in Morecambe Bay. I love working with people to inspire them about the value of our natural, cultural and built heritage and this amazing place has all of it in spades”

Sarah Mason
Chief Executive

Hailing originally from Stockport, Sarah was previously the CEO of the Wildlife Trust on the Isles of Scilly for the past 8 years.

Sarah has worked primarily in nature conservation over the past 23 years having lived all over the UK and in Spain and was drawn to the Bay by its unique sense of place and attracted by the Partnership’s reputation for doing amazing work in the community.

The team will be helping Sarah settle in over the next few weeks and she'll be getting out and about across the Bay meeting as many of our partners and friends as possible.

As early as the age of 8, Sarah was inspired by the frogs, toads and slow worms in her garden, trips to a local gravel pit and holidays in the Norfolk Broads listening and watching birdlife.

But it's not just about nature for Sarah, she's also a huge supporter of local food, sustainable public transport, volunteering and community action and is looking forward to seeking out opportunities to support local farmers, growers, and businesses around the Bay.

“We’re delighted to welcome Sarah to the team. She’s got a tough act to follow but we know she’ll bring her own touch of magic to the Partnership and I and the other Trustees are looking forward to working alongside her, working hard to make the Bay a great place to live, study, work or visit”
