Rame Conservation Trust Background
RCT is a buildings preservation trust with the purpose of conserving the heritage assets at Maker Heights for public benefit. More information can be found in RCT's Governing Documents (you can find a link to these in the "Further information" section below). As a member of RCT you will have voting rights at our AGM. As a supporter and member of the Trust we will contact you from time to time by email with newsletters, updates on our projects and events organised by the Trust, or in connection with the Trust.
RCT cares for the heritage assets at Maker Heights, including 15 hectares of rare unimproved grassland, four Scheduled Ancient Monuments and the impressive Grade II* Listed Barrack Block. These assets are all vital components of the Historic Landscape and are set in the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (Rame Head AONB). The heritage assets at Maker Heights are unique, original and, at the present time, largely unaltered. Consequently, Maker Heights is of international and national importance, and of outstanding significance.
We greatly value the work of our conservation volunteers who meet on Saturday mornings to carrying a range of activities including vegetation management, maintenance of the buildings, and archiving of our historical records. If you would like to get involved with conservation activities at Maker Heights please contact our Volunteer Co-ordinator through firstname.lastname@example.org.

- Rights & responsibilities of members:
Further information on being a member of a charity can be found at (https://www.gov.uk/government/speeches/charity-members-and-their-duties) where the duties of charity members are summarised by Stephen Roberts:
'The Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) was introduced by the Charities Act 2011, the first structure exclusively designed for charities. Section 220 states that each member must exercise the powers that member has in that capacity in the way that the member decides, in good faith, would be most likely to further the purposes of the charity. Most people who wish to be a member of a charity will welcome the notion that there is an obligation on members to act in the interests of the charity rather than in their own interests.'
