Are you interested in architecture, and the conservation of older buildings?
The Farnham Buildings Preservation Trust is looking for new trustees. If you have enthusiasm or relevant skills, such as building conservation, construction project and financial management, experience of planning law, or public relations, the Farnham Trust would like to hear from you.
Since its foundation in 1968, the Trust has been responsible for saving many Farnham buildings which would otherwise have disappeared from the street scene. The Trust is a registered charity and a Company Limited by Guarantee. There are currently twelve trustees, working on a voluntary and unpaid basis, who are also Directors of the Company, meeting as a Board once a month. The Trust’s present project is the restoration of Yew Tree Cottage in Wrecclesham, the oldest parts of which date back to 1561. In 2015 when the Trust bought the house, it had not changed hands since the 1950s, and the challenge has been to restore the building sympathetically as a family home without damaging the historic structure and fabric.
This is very interesting and worthwhile work, and if you would like to help as a trustee, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
