Staff Team at Snakehall Farm

We have a vastly experienced, talented and dedicated team at The Prospects Trust.  We will be adding staff bios to this page shortly.

The Prospects Trust’s Trustees

The strategic direction and organisational governance is collectively overseen by our four Co-managers and our board of Trustees.  Meet our Trustees:

DickDick McMullan (Chairman)is our Chairman who joined the Trustees because he really believes in creating opportunities for adults with disabilities. Dick brings a wealth of experience in recruitment & personnel management to the Meetings and sometimes even comes to the farm by bike!  

SteveSteve Elstub is our very own Capability Brown. As Head Gardener at Clare College Cambridge, Steve has career background in Horticulture and a strong belief in growing produce organically. He feels that The Prospect Trust is an ideal land based enterprise perfect for giving people with learning difficulties an opportunity to develop their confidence in a friendly and supportive environment where all people have a say in its management. Steve is our Farm & Garden Teams green fingered champion.

Paul Hamer: Is our newest board member having only joined the Trust in late 2015. He was first Paulintroduced to the idea of becoming a trustee via a development program run by his employer, but since making contact with us last summer and meeting the team, he wishes he had become involved sooner! Paul has since volunteered to help run the ‘Projects’ sub-committee and utilise the project management skills developed through his career in facilitating the continued development and growth of the farm facilities. His favourite thing about supporting the Prospects Trust is being part of a fantastic well established team, all driven by the passion to make the farm experience as great as it can be.

MaggieMaggie Bending: Has been a Trustee at Prospects Trust for 4 years now. Maggie has worked in services for people with vulnerabilities for many years, and currently work with a local Housing Association. Maggie was attracted to get involved with Prospects Trust  by the Trust’s co-operative ethos,  and the range of farming and other experiences available to Co Workers.  In these few  years the Trust has gone from strength to strength, and with exciting further developments on the horizon there could not be a better time to be part of The Prospects Trust. Maggie coined the phrase “Snakehall Farm is a magnet for niceness” which we all love to hear.
