Parndon Mill make an appeal for trustees

PARNDON Mill became a charitable trust in 2016, its objectives essentially seeking to advance the arts, culture and heritage in Harlow and the surrounding area.

Recently the Trust successfully applied for funding from Arts Council England. With these funds plans that will ensure a sustainable future for Parndon Mill have been made.

A spokesperson said: “It is envisaged that, through the development of both the physical site and partnerships with local organisations and businesses, they will be able to develop opportunities and schemes that will allow our hub of creativity to offer a greater range of arts engagements to our rapidly expanding and increasingly diverse community.

In order to realise these plans we are seeking more trustees. We feel that the effectiveness of a board of trustees is enhanced by the presence of variety of skills and knowledge – trustees do not need to be practising artists. If you value the importance of the arts within a happy society and would like to be part of guiding Parndon Mill’s development as a trustee, please contact Roger or Sally at [email protected] in the first instance.

Activating the plans for the future will involve a lot of work. Roger and Sally who are now getting on in years would be extremely grateful for any help you could offer, both for paperwork in the office and the physical work of clearing up and moving things. Skills in carpentry etc would be a great bonus as well.

It has also been suggested that we found Friends of Parndon Mill. Would you like to join? There will be no annual subscription and no pressure to come here to do voluntary work. We would just like your support, advice and ideas for furthering the development of Parndon Mill and securing its future.
