Joint Vice Chair
Hello, my name is Jacqui Cook and I am part of ChART. I am a mum and carer and have lived in Chinbrook for 26 years. A lifetime for some.
I love it here, for me I feel safe and secure and have some marvellous friends and neighbours. A good community around me which makes me feel protected also.
Besides volunteering with ChART I like to watch t.v., meet up with friends and connect with other friends through social media. If you see me at any our events, please come up to chat, there is always plenty going on with ChART and it is good to connect with what is going on in the area.
Joint Vice Chair
As a long term resident and Chair of Friends of Chinbrook Meadows I see ChART as an exciting opportunity for our area.
An opportunity to develop projects that will benefit different groups and individuals across our community and bring people together in new ventures and activities.
Our park is an amazing local resource which could be used in new and exciting ways so I hope to be involved in getting more local people to enjoy and use this resource.
ChART employs three part-time members of staff:
Victoria Morris, Suzannah Clarke, & Feona Daly Cairn
Victoria: As one of our Community Development Workers my focus is on Health and Green Spaces . I will be working to increase wellbeing in the community by encouraging people from all ages to come out and enjoy the lovely Chinbrook Meadow through various activities including our popular Nature Club and fitness classes, as well helping to organise community events and parties.
I will also be working to support senior activities in the Chinbrook area, and am very excited to be starting work on a new Befriending Project.
I am always interested in meeting and hearing from local people, so please get in touch if you have ideas, questions or want to get involved:
