Trust Management

The charity is constituted as a company limited by guarantee and is therefore governed by a memorandum and articles of association. 

Its specific objectives are :

  • The provision of recreation facilities for the residents of Cambridgeshire
  • Conservation, protection, and restoration of the Cambridgeshire countryside 
  • The establishment of a nature reserve
  • Support of registered charities having similar objectives

Since its inception in 1989, the Trust has largely achieved these objectives within the constraints of its funding and in a manner appropriate to the rural nature of the site.

The charity is organised so that the Trustee Directors meet regularly to manage its affairs. There is one part-time member of staff who is responsible for day-to-day administration. All work on the land is carried out by contractors or volunteers. The charity is a registered farmer.
