Families packed into a new £2.7million community centre at the weekend to take part in a fun day designed to show off the new facility.

Hillhead Community Centre was officially opened on Wednesday, September 24, at a special community day.

It was the first opportunity for local people to inspect the centre, which replaced the former community centre which had stood on the same Meiklehill Road site for over 80 years.

Pupils from Hillhead, Oxgang and St Flannan’s primary schools were also invited along to join in.

Then, on Saturday (October 4) even more people were given the chance to try out the new building, with a family fun day featuring a range of activities for all ages.

The centre will be open from 8am-9pm from Tuesday and Thursday, with extending opening hours until 9.30pm on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

The centre will also be open at the weekend and available for a broad range of community activities between 10am-5pm on Saturday and 12-4pm on Sunday.

Any group or organisation interested in finding out more about the spaces and lets available at Hillhead Community Centre should contact Ashleigh Grant on 0300 123 4510 or email Ashleigh.grant@eastdunbarton.gov.uk
