Who are the Foundation

Formed in March 2016, the Muscliff-Whittaker Foundation is a registered charity based in the Muscliff area of Bournemouth. The Foundation is named in honour of long serving local councillor Ron Whittaker who worked tirelessly over four decades for the residents of the Muscliff Park area.

Vision and Values

The Foundation’s aims are to enhance the recreation and leisure facilities in the park and surrounding area.

The Board

The Foundation is run by a small board of trustees on an entirely voluntary and unpaid basis. Their aims are the fulfilment of the Charity’s objectives. They offer a range of complementary skills and are normally elected for a period of three years. The current Board are:

Hilary Annicchiarico
Cllr Ian Clark

Our treasurer, and current Ward Councillor for Muscliff and Throop.

Peggy Woodcock
Chris Chubb
Committee Officer


The Board is deeply indebted to The Big Lottery Fund.

Their very generous grant covered a significant part of the Foundation’s start up costs.  This assistance, which is much appreciated, enabled the Foundation to be up and running much more quickly than would otherwise have been the case.

The Board works closely with relevant parts of Bournemouth Borough Council, particularly the Parks Department.
