Ownership & Membership

The aim of the Ownership Working Group is to deliver on each of the stated Strategic objectives contained within the Trust’s current Strategic plan, which includes:

  • Increase membership
  • Retain existing members
  • Increase the majority shareholding to 75% plus one
  • Revise the Trust Board structure
  • Review the constitution
  • Explore ‘rewards’ for existing members

The Strategic Plan is currently under review.

The Ownership working group currently consists of :
Elaine Davis (Group Lead, Trustee), Doug Gillard (Trust Member), Clive Harrison (Trustee), Peter Holding (Trustee), Pete Martin (Trustee), Clive Matthews (Trust Member), Neil Le Milliere (Trustee), Martin Lawrence (Trust member), Frank Sealey (Trust Membership Secretary), David Treharne (Trust member), Paul West (Trustee)

The group meets every 4-6 weeks and reports back on its progress at each Trust Board meeting. Meetings are typically held at 6pm at SJP and last for one to one and a half hours.

Any Trust member can join our group if you think you can contribute to our remit. If you would like to find out more, contact the current group lead as below, or write to Elaine Davis, Trustee, c/o SJP.
