The Herne Hill Velodrome Trust is seeking new trustees and is particularly keen to see applicants from the local community. After rescuing the famous velodrome from dereliction and threat of closure, some trustees are retiring and the team needs strengthening. The Trust has done a fantastic job. As well as a new track which is increasingly heavily used by both top cyclists and locals including children, a new Pavilion will open soon.
For further information see below:
Herne Hill Velodrome Trust is a charitable and not for profit trust which maintains and develops the Herne Hill Velodrome on Burbage Road as a sustainable and vibrant community-based facility for healthy recreation, principally, but not limited to, track cycling and mountain biking, accessible to users of all ages, capabilities and abilities from a wide and diverse range of backgrounds.
The Trust is looking for additional Trustees as it moves to take responsibility for the operation of the site now the new pavilion is nearing completion.
All Trustees share collective responsibility for delivering the objects of the Trust, working in line with the requirements of the Charity Commission. The Trust will operate through two bodies – a Trading Company, to oversee the operation of the Track, and a Fundraising Committee to plan a long-term and sustainable financial future for the site.
The Trust is looking for local residents to join the Trust. it needs people with significant relevant skills, in particular in the operation of a charitable Trust and in fundraising.
