Each has three sitting councillors (total 11 Lib Dem and one Labour, for what it's worth).
They put names forward on the basis of nominations received - after existing trustees have apparently been invited to comment on the candidates' merits! The list (of five then, but eight or nine now?) goes to the full council but the assembly can only approve or reject - in which latter case it looks like the top of the reserves list gets drafted in.
A number of other nuggets in there too, such as about the removal of the residence requirement.
