Trustees Week

This week the Charity Commission is marking national Trustee Week. Trustees are the people in charge of a charity. They play a vital role, volunteering their time and working together to make important decisions about the charity’s work. Trustees’ Week is an annual event to showcase the great work that trustees do and highlight opportunities for people from all walks of life to get involved and make a difference.

The staff here at Chippenham Borough Lands Charity would like to thank all our wonderful trustees for all their hard work and dedication to the charity.

Land at Baydon’s Meadow

Chippenham Borough Lands Charity has a site on the river by Baydon’s Meadow which is just under 1 acre.

This site used to be the BMX track back in 2004. Since then the site has been flattened and left to become overgrown.

Further to a news item on BBC Radio Wiltshire the Trustees are welcoming ideas as to the future use of this land. Please note that it is land locked with no services and boarders the river on one side.

If you have an idea of how this land could be used please contact us http://www.cblc.org.uk/contact/
