The Town Trust is your community trust.

It’s really important for us to have as many Stratford townspeople involved as possible to help the Trustees make the wisest use of the funds available and to help shape our future.

We already have more than 2,000 members and we hope you will decide to join us too.

You need to be:

  • Over 18
  • A resident of Stratford-upon-Avon town

Membership is fast and free – and once involved you’ll be able to participate in the elections for Trustees and even stand for election as a Trustee yourself. Get involved and let our Board know where you think our money should best be spent!

Members are entitled to:

  • nominate and elect five trustees (usually every four years)
  • be kept informed of the Trust’s activities and grants through newsletters, annual reports, mailings
  • be part of focus groups and take part in different projects
  • attend and vote at the Annual General Meeting

In return, only two things are asked of you as a member: to take an interest in the affairs of the Trust (for example by attending the AGM or respond to surveys) and, in the unlikely event that the Trust had to be wound up, you may be called upon to pay £1.
