Trustees

The Trust can appoint up to 13 Trustees including representatives from both St Albans District Council and Colney Heath Parish Council. We currently have 13 trustees so there are no vacancies, however, if you are interested in being considered should a vacancy arise, please send a covering letter and CV to us at the Highfield Park Visitor Centre or email admin@highfieldparktrust.co.uk and we will note your interest.

We ask that you live locally and have an interest in the Park.

The Board of Trustees meets six times a year although Trustees are encouraged to progress the aims and objectives of the Trust by supporting one or more working groups, which meet as required.

This might be an opportunity to gain Board level experience working with an enthusiastic team or you may have that experience already and have the time to share your experience with others.
