Dalkeith Hub – Community Workshop

Thursday June 25th 2015

Dalkeith Hub Headline

Everyone is invited to take part in a community workshop on a Hub for Dalkeith at the Dalkeith Arts Centre from 6-8pm on Thursday 2nd of July, hosted jointly by the Community Councils of Dalkeith & District and Eskbank & Newbattle.

Interest in a Hub was clearly demonstrated at a public meeting in February. This began an ongoing community conversation, sparked initially by the Advertiser’s campaign, and facilitated by both of the local Community Councils working together. Three main aspirations for a Hub have emerged; community facilities, a civic town centre, and community cohesion.

A working group of the two Community Councils has been exploring options for moving forward and are hosting this workshop to discuss these with the wider community. The focus will therefore be on how the community can continue to be active in working towards a Hub, including the transition from the Community Councils’ working group to something larger.

Anyone who would like to get in touch about a Hub or any other local issue is invited to contact their local Community Council, the contact details for which are below.

Dalkeith & District: community@dalkeithanddistrict.org

Eskbank & Newbattle: enccmailbox@gmail.com

The Community Councils look forward to continuing the conversation on Thursday and beyond.
