The Grange has a new Chief Executive Officer! We are delighted to welcome Eloise Appleby to her new role.

Eloise’s career has spanned the private, charity and public sectors. For the past 17 years she has held senior posts at Winchester City Council, heading up services as diverse as economic development, museums and environmental services.

Eloise has worked closely with the voluntary sector over the past decade and was drawn to the role here as a result of her wish to return to the charity sector.

She is familiar with Bookham as she worked at Polesden Lacey at the start of her career.

She is a supporter of Blue Apple Theatre, a drama company for people with learning disabilities and her hobbies include walking, baking and keeping chickens.
