One Dalkeith are to the relaunch of community activities at The Hub with the One Dalkeith Supper Club.

Launching on March 29th, the Supper Club will be free for all and open to everyone in the local community. It will run every Wednesday 3:30pm – 8pm for 16 weeks.

The Supper Club will allow people to self-direct/co-design activities and socialise over a meal freshly cooked by the community in the kitchen.

There are up to 60 seats available each Wednesday evening in the pop-up community restaurant within the One Dalkeith Hub in Eskdaill Court. There will also be pre-booked activities run by tutors for subjects such as sewing and mending, DIY and repurposing and cooking classes. In addition, the local community will direct other community-led activities on the night. The first meeting to organise these community-led activities will be held at the Hub on Thursday, March 9th, at 6:30pm.

Community activities led by volunteers could involve swap shops for toys, books and clothes, arts and crafts projects, repair shops, Wii Sports or Switch dance-offs on the big cinema screen, providing some homework tutoring for school children or anything else you think the community would like to take part in. One Dalkeith believe the key to the Supper Club’s success will be the community directing the activities and choosing the food on the menu.

So go along on March 9th if you have an idea for an activity you would like to organise and run at the Supper Club.

The Supper Club’ pop-up restaurant and its tutor-led activities are free for all and funded by the National Lottery.

The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland Chair, Kate Still, said:

“This project, delivered by One Dalkeith, is a great example of community activity in action, showing just what can be achieved when people come together for a common cause or to help others. It’s all thanks to National Lottery players that we can help give charities and community groups throughout Scotland greater certainty during challenging times.”
