In addition to our work days, some of the volunteers hold a committee meeting every few weeks to co-ordinate our activities. Governance involves discussing matters of concern and planning future events. Above all, we are ensuring that we are working towards our aims. In particular, the management plan for the site.

Trustees on the committee are: Robert Heathfield (Chair), Jason Tillman (Secretary), Margaret Salter (Site), John Whittaker (Treasurer), Rob Peters (Wildlife), and Pam Martin (Trustee).

In addition, to our regular meetings, once per year we hold an AGM. We invite all our members to attend. At the AGM we summarise our achievements over the past year. Furthermore, we plan what we will do in the coming months and discuss our business plan.

We appreciate input from members and they can vote on any big decisions that we make. Minutes and reports from meetings are uploaded to the link below.
