The Gregson seeks a new Chair, Secretary and Trustees

Founded by residents in 1983, the Gregson is a popular Community Centre in the Freehold area of Lancaster.  Being a trustee at the Gregson requires a strong commitment to community and to participatory arts. In addition to recruiting to the roles of Chair and Secretary, we wish to attract a diverse selection of new trustees with skills and experience in the following areas:

  • Fundraising, marketing and promotion
  • Financial management
  • Business management
  • Personnel management
  • IT/Technology
  • Building Management/Health & Safety
  • Volunteering
  • Practicing artists


We are very keen to hear from those in traditionally under-represented groups in our community as the GCA Board should fully reflect the rich diversity in our wider community.


For further information, please contact our current Chair and Trustee, Billy Pye at or Trustee Joe Sumsion at

Application Deadline:  Saturday 21st May 2022

The Gregson is in a period of development. Volunteering now will give you an opportunity to take part in an important transformation in the Gregson’s history. Your support will be vital in the reopening of the Gregson and the first step in the process of developing the organisation as a community centre led by community needs. 

If you would like to get involved, please click here to tell us a bit more about yourself and your availability using an online form. We will get in touch with you as soon as possible to discuss the options in more detail.
