ABNEY PARK NEWS

NEW TRUSTEES NEEDED 

The Trust currently has a board of nine trustees, including two nominated councillors. It would like to recruit some three or four more to help oversee the ongoing programme of education, outreach and performance activities and contribute to a future programme of improvements to the environmental, historic and archival heritage of the cemetery as well as preparing for the time when the Trust resumes full management of Abney Park.

Experience and interest in finance & grantfunding, project management, publicity and HR are particularly welcome.

A commitment of around four hours per week is envisaged.

For more information, or to apply, please email info@abneypark.org with ‘New Trustee’ in the subject line.
