Bath & North East Somerset Council is looking for 2 enthusiastic, dedicated and independent volunteers to help manage and shape the future of one of the city’s most important public spaces, Alice Park.
Alice Park on Gloucester Road is an 8 acre park which was given in trust to the Council in 1937 for use as a public park as a memorial to the wife of Herbert Montgomery of Batheaston.
It has a small children’s play area, a café, public toilets, tennis courts and a community garden.
The Council is sole-trustee of the park which is managed by the Charitable Trust Board.
The Board has set up a Sub Committee to help ensure the Council is meeting its statutory responsibilities in managing Alice Park in accordance with Charities legislation.
It now needs two independent volunteers to sit on the Sub Committee.
Cllr Martin Veal (Conservative, Bathavon North), Cabinet Member for Community Services said: “We want to hear from people who are passionate about the park, who are committed to volunteering and are able to work as part of a team.
“This is a unique opportunity to help shape a vital resource for communities east of the City.”
Previous experience of trusteeship is useful but not necessary. The independent members will not have voting rights, but will take an active part in discussions relating to decisions about Alice Park.
The Sub Committee will undertake its duties through meetings as required and will meet at least twice annually.
If you are interested in being considered for this role then apply in writing to:

- or by post to Parks & Green spaces Admin, Lewis House, Manvers Street, Bath BA1 1JG, explaining why you are interested and detailing your suitability.
The closing date is Monday 1st August 2016.
