Trustees Sought for Herne Hill Velodrome Trust


New Member
The Herne Hill Velodrome is the oldest cycle track in Britain and was the venue for cycling for the 1948 Olympic Games. It is an important community asset contributing to the health and cultural prosperity of South East London.

A vigorous campaign has been mounted to save the Velodrome from possible closure.

A charitable trust has been formed to lease the Velodrome site from the freeholders, The Dulwich Estate, create new facilities and manage the operation of the Velodrome.

Trustees are needed with professional skills and/or ability to relate well with the track cycling and local communities.

These challenging voluntary appointments will provide opportunities to serve sport and the local community.

To express interest or find out more, contact one of the three initial trustees, Hillary Peachey, Peter King and Alastair Hanton at: trustee@hhvt.org

They will be pleased to send you their briefing document, and details of how to apply.

One area which I think it's fair to say that the Velodrome under-performs in is publicity. I probably couldn't commit to becoming trustee but I would be happy to talk about ways it could be improved.
