Coldharbour Mill Trust is seeking someone with a solid background and understanding of the heritage sector to take on a leading role on their board of trustees, who support Coldharbour Mill in their charitable mission. As the current chair retires this year – this provides an exciting opportunity for someone to join the committed board of trustees in creating a sustainable future for this heritage attraction.

Until 2020 the listed Coldharbour Mill in Devon had been on target to meet the objectives of their strategic plan and had done so in the previous two years. Then the pandemic hit and it was touch and go for their survival. However the Chief Executive, Martin Halse and a number of volunteers managed to secure over £300,000 of funding through to March 2021, with further applications in progress.

The impact of the pandemic has resulted in a complete review of the strategic plans for Coldharbour Mill and during the course of 2021 they are embarking on the charities biggest ever consultation on the future of Coldharbour Mill to ensure its resilience and relevance to stakeholders old and new.

The chair will be the leading voice of our board whose responsibility it is to secure a bright future for this nationally significant historic site. The Chair will lead the Board and the organisation externally at an exciting time in the 230 year history of the Mill as we prepare for the next 200 years. The Trust is now taking applications for the post of Chair. More information can be found at: Chair of Trustees – Coldharbour Mill Museum
