Lowewood Museum in Broxbourne tells the stories of the Borough through its important collections and photographic archive. Following a review of its governance management of the Museum has been transferred from Broxbourne Borough Council to an independent trust – The Lowewood Museum Trust CIO. With support from the Borough Council and a scheduled re-opening in Spring this year we are planning our future activities that will reach out and engage with local communities.
We are seeking to appoint new Trustees to join our Board who can bring experience and skills in business planning, fundraising, financial management, school and further education to help us develop and deliver our aspirations.
The role of Trustee is non-executive, providing a rewarding opportunity to share your expertise and experience to shape our future.

Deadline for applications: Friday 12 March 2021
Over the past year Broxbourne Borough Council, the Friends of Lowewood, the Broxbourne Arts Forum, Hertfordshire Association of Museums and others have been working to establish a new charitable trust, the Lowewood Museum Trust CIO which was registered with the Charity Commission in January 2021.
The new trust will take on responsibility for the museum, its collection and services from April 2021, being funded by Broxbourne Borough Council but also able to apply for grants from the Arts Council, National Lottery and other funding bodies. The first Chair of the new Trust is local author and historian David Dent who has been involved with the Friends of Lowewood since its formation.
The Trust has plans for exhibitions and events once the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions are lifted but opening times will be dependent on the number of volunteers available to help. There will be a range of roles and volunteering opportunities and the Museum will be respectful of everyone’s commitments.
If you are able to volunteer, please could you email the Trust on firstname.lastname@example.org
