Volunteers needed for Development Trust roles
Sedgefield Development Trust is looking for someone to join us in the specialised role of Company Secretary. This volunteer will either have legal qualifications already, or they will be willing and able to take up our offer of part-time legal training, paid for by Sedgefield Development Trust.

We also need a volunteer to do the one-to-one work on Energy Switch previously undertaken by Peter Burnip. If you would like to discuss either role, please call chairman Roger Clubley on 01740 620609.

Get the cycling BUG
Did you get out on your bike for your daily lockdown exercise? Have you just dug your old bike out from the back of the shed, or have you seen the greater number of people on bikes around the village and thought you might like to give that a try?

Sedgefield Development Trust is looking into ways that we can make cycling fun, safe and convenient in the village and the surrounding areas. We want everyone to feel that cycling is for them, and whether you are a keen cyclist or a total beginner, we want you to feel that cycling in Sedgefield is something you are able to do in whatever way suits you.
