Building on Foundations at AFC Fylde

Teamwork remains a top priority at AFC Fylde Community Foundation.

Building on a hugely successful 12 months, the Foundation continues to push forward and grow its team ensuring more programmes can be delivered to every diverse section of the local community.

The latest addition to the enthusiastic team is Charlie Hay. Charlie has recently been welcomed to the Foundation as Extended Services Officer and will take over a number of dedicated responsibilities within the organisation.

Charlie’s role at AFC Fylde will see him taking full control of the development and delivery of the already well established and respected ‘Positive Pathways’ programme.

Positive Pathways is a programme in which the Foundation work closely alongside the Community Rehabilitation Company with the aim of supporting ex-offenders through a wrap-around care service, providing the best opportunities to successfully reintegrate them into society.

Alongside Positive Pathways, Charlie will work with the Foundation running the new Quality Assurance programme within schools. This highly valued project ensures that all of the Foundation’s delivery throughout schools and nurseries across the Fylde Coast is of the very highest standard and does not leave any boxes unticked.

Foundation Director Tom Hutton is pleased to welcome Charlie to his ever-

growing team. He said: "I am delighted at Charlie's appointment. After a very successful 2016, it is important that the Foundation continues to grow and strengthen the work we deliver across the local community.

“In joining the team, Charlie will play a crucial part in helping us to do this.

2017 is going to be a very important year for the Foundation. By constantly looking at what we offer and how we deliver our programmes and growing the team, we will ensure we push forward to even greater heights.”

After 34 years working in numerous operational and communications disciplines for three FTSE companies (Yorkshire Electricity; Meggitt and BAE Systems), at over a dozen locations, on 24 November 2016, I became the inaugural editor of Business Lancashire. Business Lancashire is a good news, Lancashire focused, business website and daily newsletter. It is a partnership between The Samuel James Group and the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, I have written hundreds of press releases, features for trade magazines, copy for websites and brochures, edited in-house magazines and newsletters, as well as presenting a radio programme on Chorley FM. This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
