The Welsh Perry and Cider Society is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to promoting the production of cider and perry in Wales and greater appreciation of these natural craft drinks.

Since its formation in 2001 the Society has been working tirelessly to represent, support and encourage Welsh cidermakers both large and small. In addition, it plays a significant role in conserving Welsh varieties of apple and spearheading the regeneration and conservation of Welsh orchards.

As part of its remit the Society seeks funding from external sources to undertake projects which will further its aims and it has just completed a very successful Heritage Lottery Funded Project on the Heritage of Orchards and Cider-making in Wales.

The Society now has vacancies for Directors to join its Board on a voluntary basis to assist in the management and running of the Society and to help steer it towards further project funding. Directors are responsible for the Governance of the Society, setting the strategic direction and financial management. Applicants will need to be able to demonstrate that they have a commitment to the role and expertise which will assist in furthering the Society’s aims. In particular applications are welcomed from people with knowledge and experience of financial management, project bidding, events management and human resources.
