Town Hub progress

CARNOUSTIE’S Kinloch Centre Project has progressed this week in several ways.

First the Morton Trust donated the sum of £2,000 to help move the project forward.

Rodger Brunton, chairman of Carnoustie Centre Action Group said: “This is a fantastic gesture of support. It’s great that we are reaching out to decision makers of trusts and organisations. I am so glad we are seen as worthy of this degree of support.”

The second boost related to the need for empirical evidence to support the need for a hub for all Carnoustie residents in a forthcoming Lottery bid.

Ron Woomble of Carnoustie Centre Action Group declared: “Although we completed a survey some time ago it was light on responses from young people. This we had to address.

“So three members of the group did a short presentation to the assemblies of every year group in Carnoustie High School. We were very encouraged by the willingness in the school to support our project and we wish to thank all the staff who made our visit possible.”

The third action is the display in Carnoustie Library of the concept plans of the four shortlisted architects which are all exciting.

However, Nicoll Russell Studio, Broughty Ferry, offered the chosen preferred concept design and is a company that the Centre Action Group felt would be best to work with. Mr Brunton added: “Hopefully, everyone who is interested will visit and take a look.”

Alison Paget reminded: “On Wednesday, March 23, at 7.30 p.m. in the Royal British Legion Scotland function room the general public will be treated to a presentation by Nicoll Russell giving details of how they arrived at their design.

“This will be followed by the annual general meeting.”
