As a charity we are run and governed by a committee of Trustees. They are ultimately responsible for the running of the farm as well as its governance and finances.
As well as having these governance responsibilites, 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 of Deen City Farm Limited.
Current trustees (2018/19):
Henry Nelless (Chair), Jim Edwards (Treasurer), Claire Smith (Vice Chair), Andy Wood (Secretary), Sue Champness, Lisabeth Liell, Philip Henson, Joyce Bellamy, Neha Majmudar, Will Pringle, Sarah Benson, Angela Ryan, Peter Grifin.
Becoming a trustee
We are currently recruiting new voluntary trustees to support the long term development of the Farm, and we are particularly interested in hearing from applicants with experience in events management, fundraising and education.
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.
