Community Centre Re-Opening!
The Trust is delighted to announce that the work on our refurbished Community Centre is almost complete. There will be a grand opening weekend on March 9th and 10th 2013. Details will follow. This will be an opportunity to see the new building and to get together to celebrate the wonderful achievement of not only taking ownership of the centre but of developing a high standard village facility in under a year!
On Friday 16th March 2012 Stirling Council officially transferred ownership of Gargunnock Community Centre to the community. Below are Douglas Coupethwaite (left) and Iain Gulland of Gargunnock Community Trust signing the papers to complete the transfer.
This brought 5 years of negotiations to and end. Hard work, commitment and perseverance have, at long last, paid off.
Plans to redevelop the community centre can at last go ahead.As we have not been successful in as many funding applications as we wanted we have had to scale back our plans however a significant improvement to the building is planned. We still need to fundraise to allow us to add some desirables – please consider making a donation.
