River Wey Trust
THE RIVER WEY TRUST was set up in a joint initiative by Hampshire County Council, East Hampshire District Council, Headley, Bramshott and Liphook Parish Councils, and the Bramshott and Liphook Preservation Society; all of whom nominate Trustees.
For its first 3 years of operation the Trust ran a Manpower Services Commission scheme to carry out work and research on the River; it now has a small employed workforce and uses volunteers to help carry out its objectives. Core funding is currently provided by County and District Councils, and additional funding is raised from private, corporate and other local government sources. A small proportion of the Trust's work is carried out for payment.
Day-to-day management of the Trust's activities is undertaken from the office in Liphook.
