Could you be our new Trustee?

We are looking for several new trustees.

We are looking to welcome new people of any age or background who will challenge us, help us think strategically and help us plan.

If you share our love of the Bay, want to make a difference and give back, then we’d love to hear from you.

You will join us at a crucial time as we re-shape programmes for the current circumstance and re-imagine how we can deliver in the future.

Trustees provide leadership, support and challenge.

The most obvious part of being a trustee is attending Board meetings.  At present these are held by Zoom. Trustees meet four times per year. 

The time commitment is roughly 6 days a year.  Some Trustees take on a little more with additional duties, e.g. treasurer.

Featured Story

Breeding curlews are in catastrophic decline

Do you have a favourite wader?  I love them all, but I especially love curlews.  They have a magic all of their own with a call that echoes across the landscape. Curlews were once so common, but now are in catastrophic decline.
