About Us

All about our organisation


The Auchtermuchty Community Centre was offically opened in September 1990 by the local duo, 'The Proclaimers'. The Community Centre is a voluntary organisation with charity status and, as of the 2nd of March 2017, is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO). 


The Centre receives grant funding from Fife Council that covers approximately 45% of the running costs (staffing, heating, lighting, insurances etc) the remaining 55% of costs need to be met by room bookings, activities run by the Centre, office services and fundraising.  

The Centre is managed by a group of locally elected volunteer trustees, supported by its office administrator, Emma, and caretaker, Gail.  If you'd like to join our group of Centre enthusiasts, please get in touch!  For more information, see News.

For the accounts for the year ending 31 March 2023, including our Annual Report, see Annual Report 2023.

Jon Graham - Chair

I am a qualified electrician and head coach of Auchtermuchty Karate.  I have been a trustee of the Centre since 2017.  I have a keen interest in sport and in my spare time practice my karate, play bowls and enjoy outdoor activities - walking, fishing and camping.

I am keen to help the Centre develop its community spirit and make it the place to be in the community. 

Sarah Scarlett - Treasurer

    I moved to Auchtermuchty in 2013. I love the location and enjoy walking and birdwatching in the local area and along the Fife coast.  When indoors, I enjoy music, dressmaking and family history.  I have a background in business law.   I am now retiring as Treasurer and financial controller after a number of very enjoyable, productive and challenging years.  We are suggesting that the roles be split going forward. The Treasurer would play a more strategic role in business planning and fundraising, while the Financial Controller would supervise the day-to-day finances.  

Secretary - Vacant

Linda Langford - Trustee

    I am also involved in running the Tuesday lunch club, and being the treasurer of the Seniors Club, both of which I much enjoy.  As you can guess i love helping the older generation of Auchtermuchty.  

Polly Murray - Trustee

    I am a keen cook and enjoy teaching cookery in the community.  I work as a freelance kitchen designer and in my spare time like to garden and look after my grandchildren who live in Auchtermuchty.

Emma Smith - Office Administrator

   I have stayed in Auchtermuchty all my life - it's a great place to live and bring up a family.  I have three daughters, Elyse, Amelie and Aryia and bringing up these girls takes up most of my time.  I love being a Mum and am grateful that i have a part time job on my doorstep.

I have been working at the Centre for just over 7 years now, and am excited to be working with an expanded group of trustees, all of us coming together to make the Centre the best it can be.
