The work of the Friends of Windmill Gardens is overseen by a board of trustees, which meets 10 times a year to plan strategy and campaigns. 

The trustees are all volunteers and report to general meetings of the membership. Each year they stand for election at the annual general meeting as required by our constitution. The trustees also work closely with Lambeth Council and others with an interest in the park and the historic Brixton Windmill.

As well as elected trustees, we have the option to co-opt board members with relevant experience.
