We have secured a National Lottery award from The National Lottery Community Fund, to employ a part-time community development worker for three years. We’re looking for an experienced community development worker to start at Dreel Halls in early 2021. This is our first employee and will enable a step-change in the level of activity we can support. We are on the verge of completing our capital regeneration project, and this addition to the team will put us in a really strong position to ensure that the refurbished Dreel Halls building can play a key role in making our community even stronger and more resilient than it already is.
The community development worker will be responsible for driving forward the AIA’s strategy to meet the needs of Anstruther’s community, working in partnership with the many other dynamic local groups. In times when we are not subject to the current COVID restrictions, the AIA organises social, cultural and educational events and activities, provides small grants to improve the area, runs the Anstruther Writing Awards, the Anster Cinema and All-Ages Anster Café, contributes to the burgh’s floral displays and manages Dreel Halls. Despite the restrictions, we are still running our winter Anster Nichts lecture series, now online and retitled Anster Nichts In. You can find out more about these on the events page of our website or on our Facebook page. For information on the community development worker role please go to Goodmoves.
