To crown the occasion Deirdre Wells OBE, Chief Executive Officer of UKinbound introduced (acting) Tourism Minister, David Evennett MP, to one of its longest standing members - the Household Cavalry Museum. Hosted by Director/ Head of Commercial Development and Operations Martin Westwood, the MP and CEO were introduced to serving members of the regiment and given a tour of the splendid regimental exhibits; including the most recent editions highlighting the Waterloo era. This was the last major publicity engagement for Martin, who after six years at the Household Cavalry Museum and over three decades in the attractions industry retired to spend more time with his family and relocate closer to loved ones in the Midlands.

Immediate priorities included the development of the Museum’s private hire opportunities, stemming falling visitor numbers, and bringing the Museum into closer working line with the Windsor Archive, Regimental Associations, Household Cavalry Foundation, and Engagement Team.
