Please Join Our Team

Love's Farm House logoLove’s Farm House is managed by Love’s Farm Community Centre CIO, a charity set up and run by local residents. We have our annual general meeting (AGM) on 12 October 2018 and would like to welcome new trustees to our board.

The trustees are volunteers who take overall responsibility for the community centre. At our monthly trustee meetings (on the first Wednesday of each month) we discuss finances, marketing and fundraising, defining policies and procedures, employing and managing staff, planning events and ensuring that we always act in accordance with our constitution and mission statement. We also do lots of practical jobs: gardening, running the bar and café, building maintenance and helping out wherever it’s needed. There’s lots to do but it’s really rewarding.

Some of our trustees are also regular hirers of the building, and it’s useful to have a range of ages, backgrounds and interests to help us serve all parts of the community. Click here for more information from The Charity Commission about what’s involved.

If you’re interested in becoming a trustee (or would like to volunteer in any other way), we’d love to hear from you. Please email chair@lovesfarmhouse.co.uk or call 01480 262626. Please get in touch by Saturday 22 September.
