Meet the newest member of Indie York’s team.
Lotte Inch has been appointed administrator and social media manager at the organisation which champions the city’s independent businesses.
Lotte is no stranger to the trials and tribulations of running a business, having owned her own gallery in York for more than seven years.
She was also joint founder of the Fifth Quarter – Bootham & Gillygate’s Traders Association – and was one of the original 30 businesses who launched Indie York in 2016.
Lotte also curated and programmed the Bloom! festival for Make It York – a four-day event which saw more than 100 fringe events take place, each delivered by York’s brilliant independent businesses and community groups.
She said: “It is an honour to be able to work alongside York’s inspiring group of independents and I can’t wait to support, promote and unite them as part of my role.”
Indie York’s chair, Rebecca Hill, from Galtres Lodge Hotel and Forest Restaurant, said she was delighted with the new member of the team.
“Having been a founding member, and having organised Bloom!, Lotte is well known and respected within the York community, especially amongst the independent businesses, and has fit into her new role seamlessly,” Rebecca said.
Lotte’s first key task will be to organise the Indie York AGM which takes place on Thursday 7 July at 6.30pm, kindly hosted by The Grand.
She is also inviting members to join the steering committee to direct the future of Indie York – contact Lotte at [email protected].
