Call for ACLI Trustees

The Arran Community Land Initiative (ACLI) is an ambitious project to transform 80 acres of disused farmland in Whiting Bay on the Isle of Arran, with a view to growing local fresh food using wildlife-friendly farming methods and creating a wide range of recreational and educational resources.

We are seeking additional talent for the Board and would therefore like to hear from enthusiastic and committed individuals from anywhere on the Island with an interest in becoming a charity Trustee. We currently have two positions and would be glad to hear from any interested parties particularly if you have either some land management experience or a background in administration/publicity.

Please submit a short biography or CV to ACLI trustee Rob Cowieson ( if you would like to be considered for either of these voluntary positions.
