Meet the Board

Our Board is made up of a maximum of 16 Trustees. The minimum we can have is 7. These are either Member Trustees, who are elected at our AGM, or co-opted Trustees who are brought on for their skills and interest in our work. Co-opted Trustees can be either members or non-members of DDT. We can have no more than 4 co-opted members and the Board must consist of a majority of member Trustees.

Currently we have 12 Trustees, all of whom are member Trustees who bring a wide range of skills and interests.

This page tells you more about them.

Ronnie Mclean
Ronnie McleanCaretaker, Braeport Centre
After a lifetime of teaching Physical Education I took early retirement with the intention of doing something completely different. So I started a small business building ‘Log Stores’ which ran very well for the first year but with the price of oil dropping my business went very quiet. This is when I started at the Braeport . I have now been there since September 2015.
My major passion is motorcycles and I spend a fair amount of time riding. I am a National Observer for the Institute of Advanced Motorists {Motorcycles} which involves me working with associates, passing on advice and skills.
