Do you have some spare time and skills to share? Would you like the opportunity to make a positive contribution in the Tamar Valley?
These are exciting times for the Tamar Community Trust. We are now seeking a new trustee to fill the treasurer’s position and help steer and deliver our work to protect and enhance the unique landscape of the Tamar Valley AONB.
With our showcase Calstock Wetlands & Walkway project in full swing, alongside opportunities to maintain and enhance other key sites throughout the Tamar Valley AONB, including Wacker Quay, Okel Tor and the Tamar Trails, there’s never been a better time to get involved.
This is a great opportunity for anyone looking to make a positive contribution to conserving and enhancing the natural beauty, heritage and accessibility of the Tamar Valley.
In particular, the Trust is looking for a person, ideally with accountancy or bookkeeping background or a person who has working knowledge of:
- Maintaining a cash book with associated bank reconciliation
- VAT and filing VAT returns digitally
- Production of financial reports for trustee meetings
- Operation of an online bank account
- Working knowledge of spreadsheets and word documents
These are the basic requirements for a treasurer but experience of the production of annual accounts would be of added benefit.
The Trust meets on a monthly basis, and trustees usually contribute a few hours of their time each month depending on projects and availability. We will provide a clear induction for you to get to know our trustees, partners and projects.
If you are interested in filling the treasurer’s position and wish to have more information or an informal chat please contact Pat Gould, Treasurer of TCT, by emailing email@example.com or calling 01752 341089.

We aim to meet these objectives mainly by commissioning and coordinating programmes of practical tasks, such as maintaining, creating and enhancing access trails, building bridges, erecting signs and benches, managing woodland and other habitats, enhancing access to heritage features and beauty spots, and more.
