Vacancies - Voluntary Trustees - 14th April 2022
Could you be a Sterts Trustee?

Would you like to contribute to the future of Sterts?

We are looking for new trustees.

Sterts Arts & Environmental Centre, also known as Sterts Theatre is a registered charity. Thanks to a great deal of hard work by the two members of staff and many volunteers, as well as grants from trusts plus local and national government, the charity has survived the pandemic. During this time Sterts has also been transitioning from an unincorporated to an incorporated charity, a better structure for the organisation and their stakeholders.

 

As we make that change some of the Trustees who have staunchly supported the charity for many years feel it is time to stand down from Sterts Council as we move to meet new challenges. Therefore, we are looking for enthusiastic and committed people willing to play their part in the next chapter of Sterts story as volunteer Trustees. It will be an exciting time to be part of the organisation, working with volunteers and the staff of Sterts to meet our objectives, as aligned to those of our stakeholders such as Cornwall Council and Arts Council England.

Health & Safety at Sterts - 6th April 2022

Statement from Centre Director Kate Rogers
 

Dear Sterts Community


As you’re aware, lots has been happening here at Sterts as we brush off the cobwebs to get ready for the summer season! 
 

We elected to have an external agency complete a health and safety audit ahead of opening and it flagged some fairly major areas of work to be done - nothing we can’t overcome! We have taken the difficult decision to close the site temporarily to ensure the safety of all external organisations and our community members. As is often the case with a site as unique as Sterts, the more work we started to do the more we have quickly uncovered!
 

We’re aware the season is fast approaching and are really looking forward to the site being a hive of activity again. There are a few stages to the work, but we are hoping to be able to invite volunteers in to do some necessary repair work in the theatre over the Easter school holidays. We are currently working on an action plan and listing tasks we need help with - keep an eye out for the imminent shout out! 
 

I’d like to personally thank all of you for your support and understanding with last minute rehearsal changes and have every confidence that all the in-house shows will be the backbone of a fantastic season. I’d also like to thank all the organisations and individuals who have helped us so far, particularly Alan Collings at the Caradon Inn, who has facilitated a huge amount of work happening already – thank you.
 

Finally, I’d like to re-iterate that, although disruptive, this is a real positive for Sterts. We are not alone in this either - many organisations are uncovering areas of work that have understandably been overlooked due to Covid. Systems are being upgraded, essential maintenance is taking place, training is being updated and lots of areas are having a good tidy up/clear out! We’re continuing to build on the amazing effort that has happened here in the past.

 
Many thanks
Kate Rogers
Centre Director
