Newlyn FISH Trust – seeking new Trustees


The Newlyn Fishing, Industry and Seafarers Heritage (FISH) Trust, is seeking new trustees to support the growth of our young charity.

The Trust was set up by a group of local residents who came together with the aim of protecting and sharing the culture and heritage of Newlyn, with the following charitable purpose:

“To advance the education of the public in the history, culture and heritage of Newlyn, Cornwall, in particular but not exclusively through the provision of exhibitions, lectures, workshops, traditional crafts demonstrations and other events.”


More information on the charity can be found here. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from people with the following skills and experience:
  • HR and/or Volunteer management
  • Finance: accounting and planning
  • Legal
  • Fundraising
  • Community engagement (grassroots)
  • Learning and education
  • Museum/heritage experience
  • Comms (PR, Social Media, Press)

We are aiming to recruit four trustees to join our current Board of six. We’re looking for people with a passion for Newlyn and its heritage, a commitment to supporting heritage being saved for future generations and local stories being shared with wider audiences.

We need people who are able to bring energy and commitment, engage in healthy debate, respect others’ viewpoints and most importantly, to take a proactive part in the charity’s activity.

You don’t need prior board experience – support will be provided. If you think you’ve got the skills, experience and personal qualities to support us in taking our next vital step, we would be delighted to hear from you.

Our Trustee Prospectus and Application Form can be found on our website

Closing date for applications: 5pm on Friday 1st March 2024
