As a charity we are run and governed by a group of dedicated volunteers, who we call Trustees. They are ultimately responsible for the running of the farm and are selected from our group of ‘Friends of the Farm’ at an AGM once a year.
As well as acting as representatives of the users of the Farm, the Trustees bring a wide variety of skills to the committee. As we are also a company (limited by guarantee) they act as the company directors.
Current trustees (2018/19):
Henry Nelless (Chair), Jim Edwards (Treasurer), Claire Smith (Vice Chair), Viveka Alvestrand (Secretary), Liz Daughters, Sue Champness, Lisabeth Liell, Philip Henson, Joyce Bellamy, Neha Majmudar.
Becoming a trustee
We are currently recruiting new voluntary trustees to support the long term development of the Farm.
Our ideal trustees are strong communicators, well organised and committed, with a good knowledge of the local area and a genuine interest in the work of city farms and riding schools.
The Farm’s committee meet regularly, as well as supporting events and fundraising activities. Successful candidates will be required to undergo a DBS check.
If you are interested in applying, please send a recent CV to Henry Nelless at firstname.lastname@example.org.
