Trustee vacancy – The Judge’s Lodging

The Judge’s Lodging has been operating as a visitor attraction and community venue in Presteigne since 1997. In 2016, the operation of the building was transferred from Powys County Council to an independent body, The Judge’s Lodging Trust. Since then the organisation has successfully secured over £240,000 in grant funding. We have provided employment for young people from the area, and have an active group of volunteers helping us look after our visitors and collections. The Judge’s Lodging is an important part of the community and economic eco-system of Presteigne.

Due to recent and impending retirements from the Board, we are currently seeking new Directors. Whilst no previous experience of being a Trustee or Director is required, we are looking for people who are willing to roll up their sleeves and get involved in securing the future of this remarkable building. We would especially welcome experience in the areas of learning and community engagement, marketing and fundraising.
