With considerable networks, she sees the role of chair as an ambassadorial opportunity to promote Fife and its cultural strengths.

Esther said: “As Fifers we tend to underplay our achievements when we’ve actually got so much to shout about.

“I believe cultural services are an end in themselves for the benefit of everyone, and that they also make a significant contribution to the economy.

“I’m delighted to be joining the board of OnFife and excited at the prospect of leading it through the challenges and opportunities ahead.”
