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
