Buxton Town Team is a community organisation made up of ordinary people who each pay £1 to join.
Founded in 2012, in the wake of the Government’s Portas Pilot initiative, Buxton Town Team was established as a Community Interest Company (CIC) whose objective is “to advance the prosperity of Buxton and the wellbeing of its community”.
We currently have over 300 members who appoint a board of directors. They are guided by a Code of Conduct, and their role and responsibilities are given in the Board Terms of Reference. The board meets regularly and notes of meetings, with other relevant documents, can be found in the archive below.
The current board comprises:
Lesley Caddy (chair)
Derek Bodey (treasurer)
We also have an Action Group, which meets regularly to discuss ongoing projects, plan new ones and to oversee day-to-day activities of Buxton Town Team. These meetings are open to members and to anyone else who wants to get involved – CLICK HERE for more details
