OK so we know it’s been a while since our last post on here but since then we have continued to work behind the scenes on a number of projects.
At the moment our main focus is on working with another local community group on transforming a derelict building into a much needed community facility. Among our ideas for this project is a visitors centre for Cumbernauld with information about our town from it’s origins through to present day and beyond. At the moment the project has a number of proposed uses but these will be determined based on the needs of the local community and the outcome of a feasibility study to make sure the project is sustainable.
We’ve had a number of positive meetings with the Big Lottery Fund and with North Lanarkshire Council who have expressed an interest in our project and a willingness to give the building to us.
This project is still in it’s very early stages but in the last few weeks we have built up a momentum that is very encouraging as we work to take this forward.
We’ll give more information about this exciting development within the next month or so once plans have progressed further.
