Our Patrons

Trimontium Trust’s dedicated patrons provide a wide breadth of experience, knowledge, and support, combined with their deep understanding of the heritage and culture of the Scottish Borders and the wider historic landscape.


Our Trustees

Volunteer trustees provide the strategic planning and legal oversight for the effective and progressive delivery of the Trimontium Trust’s aims. The success of the Trust would not be possible without their skills, experience, dedication, and enthusiasm for this incredible Roman fort site, our museum, and Scotland’s story.

The members of the Board of Trustees have a generic role to ensure that the Charity meets the aims and objectives defined in our Constitution. Some members may provide more specific expertise, depending on their experience. The tasks associated with the Trustee role include:

  • To be an ambassador for Trimontium Trust
  • To ensure Trimontium Trust compliance with Scottish charity law
  • To ensure effective governance of the Charity
  • To take collective responsibility for Board decisions
  • To share a sense of purpose in the delivery of the aims and objectives of the Trust
