I am Malcolm Snelgrove and it is a true honour for me to have been appointed Chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust.
I first became involved with the DPHT in 2016 when I supported the charity’s Fresh Tracks programme enabling 16 young people with a range of life challenges to walk across some 15 miles of Dartmoor as part of the Ten Tors challenge accompanied by ponies.
My photographic images have been used to encourage people to understand both how important the ponies are for the environment, and why it is critical that we protect and manage our landscapes for posterity, while encouraging people to come and enjoy Dartmoor safely and with respect for nature.
I am very excited to be working with the charity, particularly as it continues to develop its activities at Bellever, inspiring and connecting people to Dartmoor’s wildlife, landscape and heritage.
So make yourself comfortable and take a little time to read my biography which can be found here..
My initial plan will be to strengthen the Board and Executive Team, partnered by third party professionals in the field of Recruitment, Legal and Finance which is already well underway.
Secondly I wish to hold an OPEN CONSULTATION PERIOD from now until Oct 22nd 2021 as we start to build the future plan for DPHT.
I would encourage you all to take part as it is imperative that we move forward in a positive light. Feedback is important to us.
Please follow the link below..
All information, discussion and feedback will be held in the strictest confidence with me on a 1:1 basis.
If you have skills and knowledge that you feel the charity might benefit from or you would like to help the charity but do not know how, please reach out to me for a chat.
We will also be enhancing and expanding our Membership to our Farmers, Breeders and Supporters, alongside our existing members and Gorse Members.
The future of DPHT is an exciting one which we can all share.
