Jillian Creasy

Jillian is new to the board, being a member since autumn of 2015 and now serves as chair of the board as of early 2016. She was originally on the committee in the early days of the centre, but had to step down when she had become a full time General Practitioner. However, her work with the centre picked up again when she became a city councillor for the Broomhill area, helping with the projects, and since retirement, she has decided to get involved more directly in the centre. She offers invaluable knowledge about the area from living here locally and her time working as a councillor. She also offers management experience and can run groups effectively.

Pete Sacker

Pete is also new to the board having joined in 2016 and currently serves as the board secretary, however, he was involved in the conversion project in the 1980’s of the centre from a church hall. He lives locally so has knowledge of the local residents and area so he can help tailor the services to the residents along with other board members. He has a commitment to making the centre a continuing resource for the community by making the centre sustainable.



Jack De Aguilar

Jack works at the Centre as a Digital Content and Admin Assistant. Since starting in October, he has designed a new website, created social media channels and increased communication between the Centre and its users and potential new users. He has also created a community cinema project with funding from Cinema For All. The hope is that this project will increase the Broomhall Centre’s presence in the community and boosts its financial prospects while continuing to connect communities together.
