Gunnersbury Park CIC Seeking New Director

Candidate would ideally be from London Borough of Hounslow

The Orangerie at Gunnersbury Park

The Community Interest Company which manages Gunnersbury Park is looking to recruit a new director for its board.

Gunnersbury Estate (2026) CIC runs the park and museum on behalf of Hounslow and Ealing Councils.

There are currently seven members of the board and the CIC says it would ideally like to have a new director from the Borough of Hounslow. Applications are especially welcomed from women and candidates from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic communities and cultural heritage.

If you are interested, the CIC is holding an informal virtual meetup on the evening of Wednesday 26 May, where you can meet other board members and find out more about how you can get involved.

The CIC has recently submitted a planning application to rebuild the cafe that was burnt down using the footprint of the original design.

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT.
