Although the land is owned by Kettleburgh Parish Council, the Green is managed by the Kettleburgh Green Trust, a registered charity (1110467) and it relies on charitable donations and fundraising to pay for the regular maintenance such as the grass and hedge cutting, bed and path weeding. Each year the Trust needs to raise in the region of £1000 to cover maintenance, insurance and safety inspections.
The Kettleburgh Green Trust is made up of a very small team of trustees and volunteers who give up their spare time. If you are interested in helping by becoming a trustee or volunteer or just have a good fund raising idea, email Caroline Wheeler-Rowe at email@example.com.
