Trustees Required

The Herne Hill Velodrome is the oldest cycle track in Britain and was the venue for cycling for the 1948 Olympic Games. It is an important community asset contributing to the health and cultural prosperity of South East London. A vigorous campaign has been mounted to save the Velodrome from possible closure.

A charitable trust has been formed to lease the Velodrome site from the freeholders, The Dulwich Estate, create new facilities and manage the operation of the Velodrome. Trustees are needed with professional skills and/or ability to relate well with the track cycling and local communities. These challenging voluntary appointments will provide opportunities to serve sport and the local community.

To express interest or to find out more, contact one of the three initial trustees, Hillary Peachey, Peter King and Alastair Hanton, at: This email address is being protected from spambots.
