Before we start running ahead of ourselves on this, please remember that we
need to get volunteers to help out first! Please spread the word and ask anyone

I'm happy to lend a hand - I had the discussions with the V&A last time - but
would prefer someone else led the initiative. It would be particularly good if
someone from outside the board could lead this one, given that the other three
initiatives are all going to be lead by board members.
