Play Wooden is a small but growing community interest company with ambitious plans for future expansion of its service. Play Wooden is an ethical and ecological company that hires and sells a wide range of ethical wooden games sourced from esoteric games from all around the world, which are designed to nurture curiosity and exploration back into our society through play. By un-covering games lost over the generations, we start to remind players of the beauty of simplicityand move away from the hungry consumerist mentality that so often forgets to honor the journey ourmaterial goods take from source to satisfaction.The potential of play as a catalyst for learning has fallen of the grid of our collective understanding. We look for tangible means of measuring our mental knowledge, forgetting that some of the best lessons come from the unorganized chaos play so effortlessly creates.The Play Wooden Advisory Board has been set up to enable local experts, experienced individuals and professionals within our society to share their gift in service, in support of Play Wooden’s mission without the constraint of governing responsibilities.
To help us grow we need experienced members of the public to join our Board. We are particularly keen to recruit members of the local community in St Pauls, St Agnes, Montpelier, St Werburgs and Easton who have skills, knowledge and experience in the following areas:
- Knowledge and experience in the education and/or the play sector 
- Expertise in marketing, fundraising, policy and governance 
As part of the role we would like people to support the strategic development of the organisation as a sustainable social enterprise. We would like advisory board memebers to be able to attend to participate in meetings and other activities to the fullest extent possible.  
The Advisory Board officially meets every eight weeks with the Play Wooden management team for two hours – usually on Thursday at 6pm.
If you are interested in the role and would like to find out more then please contact Eve Payne by email; eve@playwooden.co.uk or through the website www.playwooden.co.uk
