Number 18 lays out its future vision
Visitors to Number 18 Community Hub were last weekend served up tasty treats from a‘cardboard cafe’as they were asked what they would like to see in the building in the future.
Dozens of people from across Rutherglen and Cambuslang descended on the hub - owned by Healthy n Happy Community Trust - on Saturday, March 26 as the charity hosted a family fun day.
The event was an opportunity for people to tour the building and offer their views on how the refurbished Old East Parish Church Hall could be used to help make Rutherglen and Cambuslang better places to live, work and play.
At the fun day people put their ideas and visions for the future on an‘ideas wall’whilst enjoying a cuppa from the cardboard cafe, erected to show locals how a community cafe could sit within the building in the future.
Residents also filled in a survey, which asked them what they like about Rutherglen and Cambuslang, what they would like to see improved in the two towns and what kind of activities and events they would like to see in an upgraded Number 18.
The consultation event - which also saw people enjoy a tour of the CamGlen Radio Station - was hosted by Community Enterprise on behalf of Healthy n Happy.
An organisation that supports social enterprises to deliver ambitious projects, Community Enterprise has been commissioned by the trust to develop a business plan for Number 18. The company will use the feedback to inform features of the business plan, due to be published later this year.
