NPHT Recruitment

NPHT — Chairman and Trustee recruitment

 

As you may know, I am a Trustee for the National Paralympic Heritage Trust as part of my role at BCC.  The NPHT was established on 11th November 2015, exists to enlighten and inspire future generations by celebrating, cherishing and bringing the Paralympic heritage and its stories of human endeavour to life.

The NPHT is currently looking to appoint up to three independent Trustees, ideally with an understanding of, and access to, important networks or contacts in the sport and/or heritage sectors, who are also committed to NPHT aims and values, and to equality and diversity.

They are specifically looking for people with skills and experience in one of the following areas:

  • Culture and heritage sector – including collections and archives, and engagement in particular.
  • Fundraising experience – particularly in the cultural sector.
  • Finance experience – ideally with a formal financial qualification to support sound financial management within the Trust.

 

Applications should be received by Monday 2nd July 2018. Interviews will take place in July.

Rural Bus Route Survey

Overview

We are reviewing the rural bus services that receive financial support from Buckinghamshire County Council and we would like to hear from people about routes affecting our division!

 

Dates

This survey is open for responses from 7 June to 20 July 2018

 

Background

Many of the bus routes serving rural areas of Buckinghamshire need ongoing financial support from the County Council to operate. We want as many people as possible in our village communities to have access to public transport, so you can get out and about and do what’s important to you, such as go to the doctors, the shops or visit friends and family.  We need to plan carefully to make sure we use this money as effectively as possible.

 

Further information about the review is available on the Bucks County Council website at the following link or by clicking on “Have Your Say” on the homepage.

Please complete the online survey!

 

If you would prefer to fill in a printed version of the survey or would like an Easy Read version, there is a print option as well. Alternatively, they are available at any Buckinghamshire library or from our Public Transport Team (see contact details below).

 

What happens next?

We’ll review all the survey feedback this summer, and later in 2018 we’ll carry out a consultation on any proposed changes. Updates on the review will be available on our website here
