Community Hub Funding

Athelstaneford Village Hall and Athelstaneford Community Group recently joined forces to apply for funding to open a Community Hub at the hall over the winter. We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our funding application!

This will allow us to open up the hall on a regular basis as a hub where people can meet and connect.

This will be free to use and includes wifi, hot drinks and biscuits.

We are interested to know what services would best suit your needs – a place to work? A place to meet? Soup Sundays? All ideas welcome!

To let us know your ideas please fill in this short survey:

If you would like to get involved we would love the support of some volunteers to help get things set up and be present when the hub opens. Please get in touch! (
