Auchendinny’s new community centre building has been handed over by the builders to the Glencorse Association.

The £1.2 million Glencorse Centre, which is due to open on January 11, will feature a cafe, meeting rooms, a hall and changing rooms.

The association received two grants – £386,000 from the Midlothian Council from a developer contribution and £823,000 from the Scottish Rural Development Programme.

During the building programme the association approached Charity Bank via the council for a loan to bridge finance.
