Fauldhouse Community Development Trust is delighted to announce that it has officially taken over the management of the Eastfield Development Centre.
This brings to a conclusion work that began over two years ago when several local groups approached FCDT about reviving this much loved community building.
The Eastfield Development Centre based on Eastfield Road is a flexible space with a multi-purpose hall, community room and changing facilities with up to eight showers.
FCDT has secured funding from the Levenseat Trust and the Coalfield Regeneration Trust to carry out essential repairs to the building including the installation of a new boiler.
Refurbishment will take place over the summer with the aim of re-opening the building in late summer 2017.
Fauldhouse Community Development Trust is in the process of developing an exciting programme of activities to take place in the building and is keen to hear from local residents about what they would like to see.
Paul Renwick, Development Worker at Fauldhouse Community Development Trust said,
‘This project would not have been possible without the support of the people of Fauldhouse. The Eastfield Development Centre is an exciting space with an enormous amount of potential. We are committed to organising activities that the community would like to participate in and would welcome any ideas.’
The Eastfield Development Centre is available to hire for groups, clubs, birthday parties and other occasions.
