Exciting times for The Burton Art Gallery and Museum

In November 2014 members of Torridge District Council agreed to establish a new not-for-profit organization to manage The Burton Art Gallery and Museum.

Following successful funding applications to Arts Council England, matched with contributions from Bideford Town Council, Torridge District Council and The Friends of the Burton, the work got underway.

A Shadow Board of Trustees were appointed in April 2015. Significant activity has taken place over the past few months, and the hard work will continue with the transfer planned to take place in April 2016.

The Trust was incorporated in October this year and will be called ‘The Burton at Bideford’.

The Trust is now recruiting a first round of new Trustees for the Board.

Chair of the Shadow Trustees Judith Gentry said “we will be looking for a broad mix of skills and experience in our Trustees and are particularly interested in recruiting proactive and committed individuals who care about the future of The Burton and have something to offer to its continued success.”

Potential Trustees who would like an informal chat about the new charity and what is involved can call Chair Judith Gentry on 07951 103917.  The closing date for applications to be a Trustee is Friday 5th February 2016.

Judith added “ This is a wonderful opportunity to have a board of Trustees that really ‘works’ for The Burton supporting our hard-working and creative staff team.”
