Things Happen Here

LOVE MEADOWBROOK?

Get involved! The DRA is actively recruiting for new trustees and new volunteers to support in the running of our much-loved 10-acre facility in the heart of Dartington village…

Did you know that the area comprising Meadowbrook park and the community centre (rented by local businesses Things Happen Here and Pizzalogica), the swimming pool, the bike track, the woodlands, the Meadowbrook football field and car-park are all leased and managed (on a lease from Dartington Hall Trust that will run until 2117) by an independent charity, the Dartington Recreation Association [DRA]?

The DRA is carried by a group of unpaid trustees and volunteers, all resident in Dartington, Totnes or the local area, who love Meadowbrook and are proud to see it flourish as a space where our families, friends and the whole community is able to thrive…

Now, as some of the current trustees approach the end of their terms and prepare to step back for a bit, we’re looking to expand the pool by our next AGM in September and welcome in new faces from across the community who can help take things forward over the next few years and beyond.

Getting involved with the DRA at this stage, you’d be joining the charity while it’s in good financial health and at a time when alongside the management of the existing facilities there are exciting new projects afoot including a sustainable energy plan for the site, the development of a new swimming pool and the future replacement of the community centre building by a new one.

As a Trustee you’ll have a direct say in what we do as a charity, help decide how we spend our income, support the charity to have a healthy turnover of trustees, be giving back to the community, be supported by other trustees, and a paid administrator. Being a trustee involves committing to 4 trustee meetings per year for a period of 1-3 years and comes with options to join groups responsible for the community centre building, the pool improvement project and management of the charity.

For more information or to register your interest, please e-mail ashish@radicalecology.earth or call/text Ashish Ghadiali on 07477578475. We’ll also be holding informal information sessions at Things Happen Here at 6pm on Wednesday 17th July and September 11th. We’d love to see you there!
