Union Chain Bridge: Crossing Borders, Inspiring Communities is an ambitious project involving the conservation of the historic Union Chain Bridge, and an extensive programme of public engagement. The project is a partnership between Northumberland County Council, Scottish Borders Council, Museums Northumberland and the Friends of the Union Chain Bridge.
In this partnership, Museums Northumberland is responsible for the Volunteer Programme and the delivery of all heritage learning and engagement activities on both sides of the border. Through everything we do, we strive to inspire people to engage and connect with local culture and heritage through a set of core values. We strive to be:
Generous - we are receptive, friendly and enabling;
Strategic - we are focused on our long-term objectives and how to achieve them;
Innovative - we are creative and thrive on ambitious projects and good ideas, and
Collaborative - we are inspired by partnership working and strive for co-delivery and co-authorship.
