After many years of work within the field of Natural Science conservation, I am honoured to have the opportunity to share some of that experience and knowledge through my newly appointed role as Director of Connect-Conserve Cymru | Cyswllt-Cadwraeth Cymru.
Connect-Conserve Cymru is a not-for-profit community interest company that connects conservators from all disciplines throughout Wales, founded during the Covid 19 pandemic by fellow company Director and conservator Dr Victoria Purewal ACR. It offers training, tutoring and mentoring to emerging professionals and aims to work as a cooperative, delivering projects using shared expertise. The main goal is to ensure that community collections in Wales have free access to advice and conservation, so that these treasured memories are not lost or put at risk. You can read more about Connect-Conserve Cymru in this blog written by Victoria Purewal for the ICON website.

Our third project was working with Natural History conservator Nigel Larkin and a Cardiff University master student Roseanna Killeen, using thermal imagery to detect cold spots at Erddig Hall, see below.
Our next step is to get our website up and running, but in the meantime you can stay up to date with Connect-Conserve Cymru projects on these social media platforms.
