A FORMER head of rural development with the National Park Authority is joining Shetland Amenity Trust’s new management team as its head of engagement next week.

Sandy Middleton is joining chief executive Mat Roberts, head of business services Tracey Leslie, head of development Davy Cooper, operations boss Adam Johnson and Catrina Carter, who is the executive assistant to the leadership team, to help steer the charity out of troubled waters.

The reshuffle is the culture and heritage charity’s response to its well publicised financial problems.

Prior to this she spent over a decade working for a national park authority. Latterly her role there was as head of rural development leading a team responsible for tourism, visitor marketing and business and community engagement.
