Would You Like to be a Trustee?

Wednesday, June 5th 2024

This is an exciting opportunity to help enhance the Reserve further as a special place to encourage nature and natural habitats and as a place for people to enjoy for specialist pursuits or leisure time.   In turn this is a rewarding role.

Foxglove Covert is a designated Local Nature Reserve of around 100 acres of moorland edge, adjacent to Cambrai Lines at Catterick Garrison and has a remarkable mix of habitats and species.  Foxglove has been developed into the gem it is today over the past 30 years.  



Catterick Garrison is one of the largest military communities in the country.  The land is owned by the Ministry of Defence.  The Foxglove Covert Foundation manage this land on a lease specifically as a Nature Reserve.  Recently a new Board has been formed to manage the Foundation following transition to a CIO (Charitable Incorporated Organisation).  There are four current Trustees, and we are looking to increase numbers by two or three to help with this role.

We are not looking for any specific background. More an intertest in the work of the Reserve and the aptitude and attitude to help with future plans to broaden appeal to the military and wider community as well as specialist audiences.

We have two excellent employees and many brilliant volunteers who all spend time and effort in maintaining the Reserve and developing initiatives. 



Ministry of Defence security requirements will have to be met.

We need some details about you, a CV if you have one (or details about your background and experience - paid or otherwise) and why you are interested in a Trustee role.  Selection will be based on those we think best fit the criteria set out but also who can bring different perspectives and skills to the work.

You are also welcome to get in touch with John Walker, Secretary on 07791 128183 or by Email to discuss the role in more detail.  If you would like to look around the Reserve that can be arranged.

We look forward to hearing from you.
