Seeking new Trustees

Seeking new Trustees

Mumbles Community Association (MCA) is looking to recruit willing members of the local community who can bring their time, expertise, experience and energy to the Charity as new Trustees.

MCA has identified particular skills which it thinks would be valuable to have within the Board. These include those who have a background or experience in the fields of finance, legal, admin and community engagement.

Welsh language would be an asset but is not essential.

Whatever an individual’s background, the most important aspect is being passionate about providing excellent facilities in Underhill Park which serve the local community and have a sustainable future.

Why we are recruiting new Trustees

The vacancies have occurred due to matters of health and personal circumstances. All the Trustees who are no longer on the Board were involved in the plans for Underhill from the outset.  All gave many years of their time and their passion to ensure Go Underhill was delivered and you will see their names on the slate plaque in the Hub lobby.

Earlier this year MCA sadly said goodbye to our Treasurer Peter Bray, who passed away following a long, hard fought battle with cancer.  Peter’s passion for Underhill and his love of spreadsheets is sorely missed.

Gerwyn Jones stepped down in 2022, having shared his passion and expertise in community development with the Charity over many years.  He played a key role in helping MCA secure funding from The National Lottery for the community Hub and café and was a strong advocate for the wider community.

And after 16 years of giving their time and energies to deliver the Go Underhill development,  Simon Tse and David Wilson have both stepped down as Trustees.  They have been invaluable in bringing the development to fruition but, now that the major building works to deliver the Hub and the new AWP have been completed, both felt that it is time to pass the baton on.   Although they have stepped down, both men have said they will continue to support Go Underhill in any way they can but will no longer be part of the formal Board of Trustees.
