Community Trust



The Trust is managed by the trustees, who are voted in by the members at the Annual General Meeting. There is a maximum of 15 trustees. We are trying to ensure that the trustees represent a wide cross-section of the town, and have skills which reflect the needs of the Trust going forward.

Any member of the Trust can become a trustee. If you are interested in becoming a trustee or would like to find out more about what it would involve, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
