Canolfan Hermon is overseen & managed by a committee / board of volunteer Trustees, who have dedicated their time and energy to making the dream of Canolfan Hermon a reality. They will be found supporting and helping to run the events at Canolfan, working hard behind the scenes to keep the day to day life of the centre on track . Sometime even in front of the bar but for some perhaps more often than not serving behind it! A huge thanks is to each and every one of them for their drive and enthusiasm that is the very heart of Canolfan Hermon
