MCFT Staff

Since opening in 2009, MCFT have relied on volunteers and support from Tracey Burrows, the Merstham Community Development Worker to keep the facilities open. In April 2015, we were able to appoint our first employee, Mandy Jenkins to help us manage the facilities, support our volunteers and help us as we moved towards our new home in the Hub. Mandy left us in June 2018 and we are now looking to define our staffing requirements going forward. Our volunteers have all stepped up and taken on new and challenging roles within the organisation and we remain, as always, immensely grateful for their time, energy and support

Tracey Burrows (Merstham Community Development Worker)

Tracey 1

Although not employed directly by MCFT, Tracey has worked with us to establish MCFT and to bring a range of activities for benefit to the local community to the facility. Tracey says ‘MCFT has provided me with a great home at the heart of the community here in Merstham where I can work to increase access to services, meet and work with local people and progress the aims of my community development work’  Over the next three years, Tracey will be leading on our People’s Health Trust funded project placing local people at the centre of new service provision and making sure that community development is embedded in new activities and services available at MCFT and the wider community

Charlotte Emery (Project Worker, Friends of Merstham Projects)

Charlotte joined us in June 2017 to focus on supporting local people to design and lead on projects funded through our successful bid to The People’s Health Trust through  Health Sound (funds raised by the Health Lottery). Charlotte has worked really hard to help people from our community to set up and run a range of activities and events from a fishing group to our regular social group The Rendezvous. Charlotte has made great links with other local organisations and continues to provide outstanding support to volunteers involved in all our Friends of Merstham projects
