Community spirit rekindled at Townhead
Townhead is set to receive a new £1.3 million public hall at the foot of the recently refurbished Taylor Place tower blocks.

A meeting will be held on Wed 27 Aug at 7pm in The Martyrs Church to ask local people what facilities they would like to see provided by the hall.

The new building is intended to provide a place for residents to meet and socialise with suggested facilities including a café, computer room and library alongside a drop in centre for young people offering employment and financial advice.

City councillor Gordon Matheson said: "I've been working with local residents since 1999 to build a new village hall in Townhead and our efforts are paying off.  The community has a shortage of facilities and Townhead Village Hall will be a social centre managed by the community, a place for lifelong learning and fitness."

It is hoped that work can begin in Summer 2009 for an anticipated completion in early 2010.
