How is the trust governed and managed?

Brymbo Heritage Trust is a registered charity and has been since August 2017. 

 

We currently have five trustees, and we’d like to return to a position where we have more. We’re especially keen to broaden the board in terms of skills, experiences, gender and background. If you're interested in joining the board please email our chair Nick Amyes at nick.amyes@brymboheritage.co.uk

 

Like any charity our charitable objects set the context for everything we do. We have four objects as follows:

  1. To promote for the benefit of the public the preservation, protection and improvement of historical artefacts, structures, buildings and landscapes which are of historic or architectural importance relating to Wrexham’s industrial heritage.

  2. To promote for the benefit of the public the conservation of the Brymbo Fossil Forest.

  3. To advance the education of the public in the geography, history, natural history and architecture of Brymbo and adjacent areas.

  4. The promotion for the public benefit of urban or rural regeneration in areas of social and economic deprivation and in particular Brymbo by the following means:

  •  to provide education, training and re-training opportunities and work experience, especially for unemployed people;

  •  to provide, maintain and improve recreational facilities;

  •  to provide public amenities.

 

Our work is governed by the board of trustees and delivered by the staff team and volunteers under the overall leadership of the trust manager. Given the complexity of our work we’ve invited several of our partners to join us on our Trustee Board and on our Project Board, so we can gain from their insights and perspectives. 

 

We work with a wide range of partners and funders - all of whom naturally want to make sure that our projects are successful, that the benefits we aim to bring can be fully realised, and that everyone can play the right part.

To coordinate the building works we have appointed a range of specialists and professionals – led by our  technical project management partners Greenwoods Projects Ltd, including architects, conservation architects, quantity surveyors, building surveyors, architectural historians, electrical engineers, structural engineers, drainage engineers, and so on.
