Our Trustees come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing a diverse range of skills that are complementary to the needs of Richmondshire Building Preservation Trust.

Some of our ‘old hands’ have been Trustees since The Station project was just an idea while others have joined more recently and are enjoying the challenge of bringing new projects to fruition.

We work closely together, sharing a common interest of helping to care for and advise on buildings at risk in Richmondshire.

Our Trustees meet formally once every two months and "working groups" meet more regularly to address specific matters.
