Community / Co-opted governors – appointed by the governing body as representatives of the wider community in which the school is based.

Categories and roles of school governors
School governors are one of the (UK) country's largest voluntary groups with around 300,000 contributing to strategic development and raising standards of achievement at more than 30,000 schools.
Individual governors have no power or right to act on behalf of the governing body except where the whole governing body has delegated a specific function to that individual or where regulations specify a function is to be exercised in a particular way.

Be a Governor
http://www.nga.org.uk/About-Us/Be-a-Governor.aspx
Be a Governor ... School governors are people who want to make a positive contribution to children’s education.
The governors' role is not about fundraising, neither it is about cheerleading for the school - though governors might do both those things. School governors provide strategic leadership and accountability in schools. Governors appoint the head teacher and are involved in the appointment of other staff. In some schools the site is owned by the governing body.
It is governors who hold the main responsibility for finance in schools, and it is governors who work with the head teacher to make the tough decisions about balancing resources.

Being a school governor : BBC

Being a school governor : BBC
School governors are volunteers who help to run the school. Most schools work with a group of school governors - together they’re called the 'governing body'. They’re involved in decisions about all aspects of managing the school – such as running buildings and budgets, supporting staff and setting standards of school discipline.
Governors also help to make big decisions about the school’s long-term goals. They support headteachers, but also ask questions and make sure the headteacher is taking the school in the right direction.

Governors Guide to Sustainable Schools UK June07
http://www.education.gov.uk/search/results?q=governors
Governor's Guide to Sustainable Schools and Toolkit
The DfES have developed a series of tools to help governors think creatively to build a sustainable future for their schools. Firstly, a booklet: 'Strategic, challenging and accountable: A governor’s guide to Sustainable Schools' sets out the principles for school leaders in creating the right backdrop for sustainable schools.
In addition, there is a presentation with notes designed for governors to use as a starting point in their meetings (taking about 30 minutes) and a 2 hours workshop with notes and handouts designed for experienced facilitators to use with governors and school leaders.
