Contact Details:

Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust is a community-led organisation, established in 2004 by local people, to rescue the semi-derelict historic building from proposed demolition. The regeneration project dramatically re-purposed the landmark building and, since re-opening in 2012, the multi-functional Halls are back into the heart of the Maryhill community.

The board of directors are looking for new members who may be local or otherwise and have an interest in the Maryhill community. It would be particularly valuable to have new local members with Fundraising, Legal, Marketing & Comms expertise. Although we are primarily looking for experience in these areas, we welcome interest from all backgrounds and experience.

Working to a social enterprise model, the Halls generates a level of self-funding through office rental and event space hire. The halls also contain as a tenancy a nursery and two recording studios. As part of our community engagement and our aims we have a small exhibition/museum space and the main hall and other areas are available for short hires for events, functions, conferences as well as hosting a variety of community events. We have refurbished the onsite café which we will soon be operating as both a community amenity and eventually a skills training facility.

There is much being done and still more that we can do and we would like energetic and committed people to join us on the board to help drive it forward.

The board of Maryhill Burgh Halls trust would like to hear from individuals who can spare a few hours per month. It would be advantageous, but not essential, if you live or work in the local area (G20, G23, G12 postcodes).

Number of meetings per annum/time commitment: Formal, early-evening board meetings are held every 2 months, with various ad-hoc and topical sub-committees meeting in between. Board meetings will preferably be held in person.

Daytime or evening meetings: Evening
