Housebuilder backs new community hub
Ongoing work to breathe new life into Crieff’s former Penny Lane shopping arcade received a funding boost this week.
Ian Welsh, a construction manager with housebuilder Ogilvie Homes, visited the Church Street site to present a cheque for £1000 to Crieff Connexions.
Rev Andrew Philip accepted the donation on behalf of the local charity, which has taken over the arcade and wants to use it to expand on its existing services for the community.
Andrew thanked Ogilvie Homes for the firm’s generous backing.
Crieff Connexions is still offering its foodbank service from the doorway at Penny Lane on a Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday but its other services are currently on hold as volunteers concentrate on preparing the new community hub.
The hope is that it will open in some form early in February.
Anyone wishing to volunteer with the ongoing work can email admin@crieff connexions. org.uk or message the Crieff Connexions Facebook page.
