Num­ber 18 lays out its fu­ture vision

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

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.
