The Trust has run elections for a number of posts on Council. For the Friends of the Trust election please visit our dedicated Friends’ election page.

One candidate, David Kent, stood for the Angling/Fisheries post. As the number of candidates did not exceed the number of available posts, David Kent was duly appointed.
