Glencorse Association take possession of Auchendinny community centre
A new community centre in Auchendinny, Midlothian, has been handed over to the Glencorse Association ahead of its official opening next January.

It replaces a seventies era village hall which was demolished to make way for the £1.2m replacement, funded by Midlothian Council , Scottish Rural Development Programme and Charity Bank.

Designed by John R Harris and Partners the new centre is clad in European larch with a sandstone feature wall and copper canopy. A curving pre-cast concrete wall denotes ramped access to the main entrance and rises to culminate in views away from the site toward the Pentland hills.

John Barnett, Charity Bank’s regional manager in Scotland said: “It has been an inspiration to work with the dedicated volunteers at The Glencorse Association and their supporters at Midlothian Council. The bank is delighted to have been of assistance but the real stars are the people in the community who brought this challenging project to fruition. I am looking forward to seeing the completed building at the official opening.”

The completed centre incorporates a multi-use centre , meeting rooms, café and football pitch.
