Biography for Harry Musselwhite
My appointment as a Trustee of Glastonbury Abbey comes through being Chairman of the Bath and Wells Diocesan Board of Finance. The continuing link between the Abbey and the Diocese dates at least from 1908 when the then Bishop of Bath and Wells had the vision to acquire the historic site for the Church of England and the nation.
The Abbey still makes an important contribution to the nation’s history and culture and so I am proud to play a part as one of the Trustees. I see the Trustees as having responsibilities for the governance of the Abbey, setting its strategic direction, ensuring its financial health, and supporting its dedicated staff and volunteers.
