CORE’s New Managers

The outgoing managers, Terri Pinegar and Sue Matthews have great pleasure in introducing CORE’S new managers. Terri has worked at CORE since 1999, first as an IT tutor and in 2004, she accepted the post of Project Manager.  She says “I’ve had the time of my life at CORE.  I’ve met and worked alongside wonderful people doing interesting things.  Honestly, no two days are the same and the time just flies.  I hope Sam and Becky will be as happy as I’ve been at CORE and in this community.  They have such energy and enthusiasm and some great ideas for CORE’s future and I am happy to support them.”

Sue says “I first joined CORE as a student in the 1990s and Terri soon recruited me as a volunteer. I have been Assistant Project Manager since 2008 and have enjoyed every minute of my time at CORE.  The work is so varied and fulfilling and, of course, the people who attend from the community make it a pleasure to come to work. I will be very sorry to leave my role but feel the time is right to hand over to a new, forward-looking team. I will still be a regular at CORE, though, as a volunteer.”

Sam Round – New Project Manager

Sam is a Calverton resident who has been involved with CORE for over 20 years, either as a learner gaining qualifications, trustee or volunteer. Sam has many years of customer service and sales experience. She is highly motivated to serve her community and takes great pride in providing an excellent service in her work. She is used to managing a team and has previously worked in the charity sector and worked with volunteers. Sam is fully aware of the impact that COVID 19 is having on the community and the consequential challenges that CORE will face helping to rebuild the social cohesion in the village. She has positive ideas to take the charity forward and is excited about fulfilling her role as Project Manager.

Becky Lord – Assistant Project Manager

Becky has been involved with CORE for 3 years, both as a valued past trustee and then as a friendly volunteer who is well respected in the local community. Becky’s background is mainly in education where she had a successful teaching career and role as a senior leader and manager. Becky has worked in various industries, including forming and successfully running a training school within the brewing industry for Heineken UK. Becky is passionate about giving back to the local community and enjoys thinking creatively and driving forward new initiatives.

Norman Lord – Chairman

Norman Lord is a local semi-retired business man. He has worked within the brewery industry for the past 35 years and has run his own successful service company for the last 25 years.  Norman is a local lad who has supported the CORE in recent years and takes a keen interest in the local community. He was delighted to have been elected as the new Chairman in Oct 2020 and is looking forward to helping CORE overcome the challenges of Covid-19 and continue with another successful chapter. 

Terri and Sue are delighted to be leaving CORE in such capable hands and are committed to continue supporting Norman, Sam and Becky in the future.
