Eastfield Development Centre

As well as its main premises based at The Hub (10 Main Street), Fauldhouse and Breich Valley Development Trust is also delighted to run the Eastfield Development Centre (2 Eastfield Road). Here is more information about the Eastfield Development Centre:

Eastfield Development Centre

Background

The Eastfield Development Centre is owned by West Lothian Council but F&BV CDT have been leasing the building from them since May 2017. This was in response to local residents approaching the Trust about bringing this much loved building back into use.

The Centre consists of a large multi-purpose hall, small kitchen, a changing room containing seven showers with a grass football pitch available outside. All the space is available to hire.

Re-opening

On securing the lease from West Lothian Council in 2017, the immediate priority was making the building fit for purpose as it had fallen into disrepair.

The Trust has spent over £30,000 on repairs and improvements to the heating system, plumbing, lighting, drainage and CCTV. This has been done with very little support from outside funders. All the money generated from the Eastfield Development Centre is used to cover the running costs of the building.

Since 2017 a number of activities have taken place at the Centre including health and fitness classes, tea dances, football reminiscence groups, birthday parties, community events and much more.

The Future

F&BV CDT is currently in discussion with West Lothian Council about taking full ownership of the building which will hopefully be completed by the end of 2021. This will provide the opportunity for the building to undergo much needed refurbishment creating a facility that can deliver more activities and be more financially sustainable.

The impact of the current COVID-19 pandemic will be felt for a long time to come and it is the Trust’s intention that the Eastfield Development Centre be at the heart of the recovery. Plans for the future include creating a central/local hub at the Eastfield Development Centre for food collection and distribution, sport, health and well-being.

Find updates and information about Eastfield Development Centre in the new quarterly Eastfield News. This publication will be delivered to all Fauldhouse residents and the Eastfield News can also be download here.
