The Community of Newmains in Lanarkshire is today celebrating an award from the Big Lottery Fund’s (BIG) Our Place programme.

A brand new community hub is on the cards as Newmains Community Trust will receive a grant of £2,340,566, one of the biggest ever grants awarded by BIG in Scotland.

The new investment, which has been made through BIG’s Our Place programme, has been secured by the community following a public consultation with local people including school pupils and local organisations in the area. This consultation which identified a new community hub as the investment which would make the biggest positive difference to the lives of people in the community.

John Harper, Vice Chair, said, “Newmains Community Trust is delighted to be awarded the Big Lottery Fund grant to build a new Community Hub, with a library and community cafe for Newmains.

In the past two and a half years organisations and groups within Newmains have learnt to work together with a common purpose and we look forward to having a focal point with community activities.”

Announcing the award Big Lottery Fund Scotland Director, Jackie Killeen, said:

“I’d like to congratulate the people of Newmains for their imagination, co-operation and hard work in securing this funding. The Newmains Community Trust has worked tirelessly with support of the Coalfields Regeneration Trust to make sure that everyone in the community has had an opportunity to contribute to the development of a shared vision for the area. That’s the vision we’re supporting with Lottery funding.

“We’re delighted to be able to play a role in this story by providing the funding which allows this community to build their own facility and take a big step towards controlling their own future. The community has hard work to do to make their plans a reality, but from the evidence we’ve seen they are more than capable of making this project a huge success.”

Newmains Community Trust’s ‘Newmains Community Hub’ project aims to provide a multi-purpose community facility from which services can be run by, and for community members to improve the social and economic life of the village and to tackle community issues. The facility will be designed to be flexible in meeting local needs. It will directly benefit the residents of Newmains, North Lanarkshire.
