Welcome to our quick guide to everything you need to know about the Trust board election campaign and voting for 2020.
This year there are six nominees for four places on the Trust Board. The hustings will provide the opportunity to hear from each of the candidates, as they answer questions put to them by the Trust membership.
The hustings will begin at 10am on Saturday, November 7.

The hustings will also be recorded and posted to the Trust's YouTube channel and here on the website after the event.
