Local returns to Upper Nithsdale for Multiverse post

Home | Uncategorized | Local returns to Upper Nithsdale for Multiverse post

A Kirkconnel native has returned to the area to take up a position at the Crawick Multiverse, the new £1m work of land art which will open to the public on 10 July.

Ian Bell, a former Sanquhar Academy pupil whose parents still live in Kirkconnel, has been appointed site supervisor at the impressive new attraction, designed by renowned land artist, Charles Jencks, and funded by the Duke of Buccleuch.

Ian will manage a team of 11 on the site on a day-to-day basis, overseeing operations, guest services and general upkeep of the ground-breaking project.

A large part of the full-time, year-round role will include liaising with the local community to ensure people from in and around Upper Nithsdale benefit from the remarkable new resource – whether for school visits, community group trips or special events.

Ian Bell said: “I’m delighted to have been appointed and am already thoroughly enjoying being part of the Crawick Multiverse team. It’s a truly unique, landmark project which has the potential to bring huge benefits to this area – I’m keen to ensure we maximise every opportunity.

“I’ve been away from the area for some time, but it’s wonderful to return and be welcomed by local people who are very excited about the Crawick Multiverse opening next week.”

Rosalind Baker, Mobilisation Manager at Crawick Multiverse, said: “We’re thrilled that Ian has joined the team and really appreciate his local knowledge and passion for the area. He has lots of ideas on how the site can be used to benefit the community and has already shown a really innovative approach.

“We’re looking forward to welcoming our first visitors when we open on 10th July and encourage them to contact Ian with any suggestions or ideas they might have.”

Local residents in the DG4 and ML12 postcode areas are eligible for a Pay Once Scheme at Crawick Multiverse, securing a season pass for the cost of one visit. Those within these postcodes can also convert their launch ticket to a season pass.

General tickets are £5 for adults (£4 for concessions), £2 for children aged between five and 16, with under-5s admitted free of charge. Family passes for two adults and two children are priced at £12.50.
