Big year planned for top Lyme visitor attraction
An art sale and the creation of a new post are among some of the exciting new year projects at Lyme Regis Town Mill.
Currently, visitors can purchase works created by local artists who regularly exhibit in the galleries.
From now until January 24, visitors will be able to choose from a wide variety of subject matter and media, 2D and 3D, on display in the annual show at the Courtyard and Malthouse Galleries.
Also, coming up soon, The Town Mill Trust will be looking for a motivated, self-starter to join the small team of five which runs the complex.
The new, part-time post is as visitor experience and volunteer leader, responsible for developing and coordinating the various aspects of The Town Mill ‘experience’.
This includes mill and shop opening and staffing, special events, the education and ‘Friends’ programmes, marketing, fundraising and the recruitment, training and management of mill volunteers.
The successful applicant will work closely with, and report regularly to, the trustees.
Although no specific qualifications are necessary, the trust is looking for someone who is a good communicator - both face‐to‐face and in writing - and has a good understanding of social media.
Proven experience of event management, motivating volunteers, working in a team environment and fundraising for charities is desirable.
The Lyme Regis Town Mill Trust is planning to advertise the new post and interview applicants during mid to late January or early February, for a planned start in February or March. Applications and CVs, in writing, should be to be sent to Gary Willis, The Town Mill, Mill Lane, Lyme Regis, Dorset, DT7 3PU. For further information about the role, call 01297 444042 or email email@example.com with the subject ‘visitor-volunteer role’.
