Cogges Heritage Trust

Cogges aims to
 
·        be a place whose past is understood, valued and enjoyed by all who visit
 
·        help people to learn about the past, present and future of producing food locally
 
·        make a positive contribution to all its communities and the natural environment
 
·        be a place where people of all ages can relax, participate, learn new things and have fun
 

Cogges is managed and staffed by The Cogges Heritage Trust, a registered charity (no: 1141906) which leased the property from Oxfordshire County Council in 2011. The Council initially provided funding to set up the new Trust and to enable Cogges to open to the public, and going forward Cogges must be entirely self-financing.  

In addition to income from visitors and events, weddings and activities, Cogges is also dependent on donations, of both time and money. This means we can keep the lights on and the animals fed, offer more for your visit and provide a great team of volunteers.
 
The Trust contributes to Cogges by providing experience and expertise, as well as working on long term improvements, projects and fundraising initiatives to fund developmental learning programmes and refurbishment projects.
 
The Board of Trustees is made up of people representing different communities and offering a broad range of skills. Two of the Board members are representatives of Oxfordshire County Council which continues to own the site.
