Moseley Park and Pool Trust
The Park is owned and operated on behalf of the local community in South Birmingham by a Charitable Trust – the Moseley Park and Pool Trust (registered number 1115870), with a Board of Trustees who manage the assets of the Trust. Their duties and responsibilities are defined in the Articles and Memorandum of Association and these are approved by the Charity Commission. Currently there are eight Trustees, whose details are given below. However the Trust wants to increase this number and is actively seeking applications from interested individuals.
How to become a Trustee
The Trust intends to appoint more trustees next year. We are looking for individuals with a strong commitment to conserving, maintaining and developing the Park as a valuable local asset for the whole Community to enjoy. Expertise and experience in one or more of the following ares would be valuable but not essential: fundraising, marketing and communications; business management, IT systems, planning and construction, community links, park and facilities management.
Applications consisting of a single-sided letter, outlining your interest(s) in the Park and what you might be able to contribute, should be sent to: Chair of Moseley Park and Pool Trust, Moseley Exchange, 149-153 Alcester Road, Moseley, Birmingham B13 8JP, to whom enquiries can also be addressed (firstname.lastname@example.org).

Jonathan has lived in Moseley for the last ten years and in Birmingham for the last twenty.

Before taking a position as a Trustee of Moseley Park & Pool Jon was on the PCC of St Mary’s Moseley.
