Trustees & Youth Trustees

Would you like to play your part in developing an exciting future for a remarkable museum?

The North Craven Building Preservation Trust (NCBPT) cares for the Zion Chapel and The Folly, an extraordinary 17th century building, home to the Museum of North Craven Life.

We are seeking new Trustees & Youth Trustees (18-35) to join the NCBPT Board – people who can offer creative thinking, a fresh perspective, knowledge and skills, especially in areas which are currently under-represented. We are committed to making the Folly engaging and exciting to everyone and at the moment our younger audience members are not represented by our Board.

The museum was founded on the enthusiasm of volunteers who transformed their vision into reality. We are looking for Trustees & Youth Trustees with the same ambitious spirit who are prepared to work as part of a team to shape the future of The Folly and the Zion Chapel.

Being a Trustee provides exciting opportunities for professional and personal development, an opportunity to build networks, gain career building experience, and contribute to a team striving to make a difference
