Nelson and Colne College Board of Corporation strengthened with successful appointment of four new governors

The new board members will play a key role in supporting Nelson and Colne College

A quartet of new governors have been appointed to strengthen Nelson and Colne College’s Board of Corporation following its successful merger with Accrington and Rossendale College. Tim Webber MBE, Brian Fisher, Stephanie Bridgeman and Steve Hughes have all been welcomed to the board, bringing with them a broad range of skills, expertise and experience.

The new board members will play a key role in supporting Nelson and Colne College, Accrington and Rossendale College and Lancashire Adult Learning, as they work to establish the vision of a combined institution that offers exceptional skills, vocational and occupational training, sixth form and adult community provision across East Lancashire and beyond.

The merger, completed in November 2018, will also create a financially robust college that can maximise the benefits for learners, make best use of public funding and maintain innovation and excellence, and the quartet will have important roles to play to ensure that the vision is realised.

Tim is Chairman and Managing Director of Barnfield Construction Ltd – the Pendle based contractors, developers and investors. The company employs over 250 people, operates on more than 30 sites nationwide and has a turnover of £70million. Awarded an MBE in 2015 for Service to Business and the Community in Lancashire, Tim is also Vice Chairman of the Pendle Vision Board and a board member of Groundwork
