A former National Trust manager has joined the team at City Culture Peterborough’s Flag Fen with plans to raise the profile of the pre-historic attraction.
Jacqueline Mooney, who has extensive experience in the heritage sector, is excited to begin rejuvenating the 3,000-year-old landscape at Flag Fen, highlighting the amazing discoveries that have been made to encourage people to discover its unique place in England’s history.
Before being appointed as general manager at Flag Fen, Jacqui worked for the National Trust for 10 years in various roles, including overseeing the operations of Dunstable Downs in the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Prior to this she was head of visitor operations at English Heritage, looking after a vast portfolio of attractions in East Anglia, Kent and Dover Castle, Yorkshire, Cheshire, North Lincolnshire and Durham.
Jacqui’s short-term goals for Flag Fen involve re-building the lost round house, a re-fresh of the visitor facilities, café, children’s play area and launching an annual pass that will grow support and benefit repeat visitors. The longer-term vision will be to create a 10-year investment programme that will connect the people of Peterborough with their history and showcase the international importance of this unique site and collection.
