We are a small, friendly group in Suffolk who own and manage stepping stones of land that act as wildlife sanctuaries and promote biodiversity. We have the resources to gain more land and are seeking people with all sorts of expertise and skills.
We are looking for Suffolk based trustees, advisors and/or volunteers with a desire to promote biodiversity. There are lots of ways you could contribute and we are looking for more than one trustee. Specifically we'd like to hear from you if you have skills and experience in applying for grants, fundraising, sourcing and buying land, maintaining a website, working on the land, social media, administration, conservation, monitoring wildlife, and also those with a background in town planning. The charity currently owns two small plots of land North of Ipswich and our faithful trustees maintain these as havens for wildlife. We have the resources to buy more pieces of land to act as stepping stones for biodiversity, and would like help with planning this next stage, as well as with the day to day running of the charity. We currently hold meetings 4 times a year in Ipswich. We also hold occasional work parties on the land. We will continue to expand our activities as we grow and develop to meet the charity's aims.
We would welcome interest from individuals with any of the skills described as there are a number of potential roles. As well as buying land, with all that that entails, we need to generate income, and would like to, for example, do more monitoring and recording of the species on the sites. We'd also like to develop a strategy to generate the interest of local people in biodiversity and the inspire motivation to get involved. You would need to be able to regularly attend meetings.
We aim to build a committed board of trustees who will each bring their special interest or skill to help us achieve the aims of the charity in the best way possible.
This is an opportunity to contribute your creative, intellectual, practical, or social strengths to make a positive impact on the environment and the community. Join our friendly group of enthusiastic trustees, who enjoy meeting together and believe in preserving the beautiful natural environment of Suffolk. We are continuing the legacy of the inspirational founder of the charity, winner of the Suffolk Green Hero Award in 2015, who died in 2018. Initially we are inviting expressions of interest and are happy to discuss the opportunity further with any interested parties.
We would be happy for you to visit us before deciding if you would be interested.
