The search is on for Gunnersbury Museum and Park voluntary trustees.

Up to four appointments will be made to join the board of what will be the Gunnersbury Museum and Park Development Trust.

Those selected will play an important role contributing to the multi-million pound redevelopment; ensuring the Grade II* listed, 186 acre site fulfils its potential to become a major heritage destination and community asset.

Trust members will be expected to raise funds to help conserve, transform and make more accessible the heritage, landscape, park land and sporting legacy of the estate.

The Trust and its members will be supported by the combined professional bid writing team from Ealing and Hounslow councils.

Applicants need to demonstrate a commitment to west London, a passion for Gunnersbury Park and have the ability to network and fundraise.

Ealing Council’s leader, Councillor Julian Bell, said: “It’s a very special place, much loved by both Ealing and Hounslow residents so understandably we are looking for pretty special people to entrust its future to.

“If you have a passion for Gunnersbury; along with the time and energy to help make this vital community asset even better; please do come forward. You won’t regret it.”

Hounslow Council’s leader, Councillor Steve Curran, added: “Becoming a Trustee at Gunnersbury puts you right at the heart of west London’s most exciting park regeneration project, recently boosted by some £10 million of lottery funding.”

Once all four new trustees are appointed, the Gunnersbury Museum and Park Development Trust will then make an application for Charity Registration with the Charity Commission in February 2015.
