  • COMMUNITY CENTRE PROJECT

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    It has been recognised for a long time that Tranent has a lack of quality community facilities. We have an excellent sports centre and library but lack a community centre. Tranent is the only main town in East Lothian without one.

    This is why The Fraser Centre Community Trust was formed in 2011. We are now working with Architects to create a design that fits the needs of the community on the site of The Fraser Centre.

    This will be a centre for the community, made by the community.

    And we need your support. to find out more visit our project website www.friendsofthefrasercentre.com now.

    Thank you

  • STONEWORK IN SAFE HANDS!

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    The Chairman of The Fraser Centre Community Trust, Jonny Russell, was invited to the construction site to carry out a special task in recognition of his role in the creation of the new community hub.

    In 2011 Jonny, supported by family and friends, had the vision to regenerate the old picture house into a building suitable for helping the community.

    Although the old building was not able to be saved a new facility is being created in its place which will provide a centre for learning, development, arts, entertainment and a café in the heart of the town. It seemed very fitting that Jonny should be invited to be the person to put the first bricks in place on the new development.

    Jonny said: “I’m really excited about the building opening and what we are going to be doing for the community. It has been great to see the spaces and the building rising out the ashes: a brand new building for the community, built by the community”

    The Trust aim to open the new building in Autumn 2019.

    Thank you to Fleming Buildings Ltd.

  • FRASER CENTRE SENDS A MESSAGE TO THE FUTURE

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    Primary school photographs, a nursery toy, images of Old Tranent and a judo belt – just some of the eclectic mix of items that locals have contributed to two time capsules which have been put in a wall of the new Fraser Centre.

    With work well underway on the new building, the Community Trust has been busy collecting memorable bits and bobs to give future generations a sense of the people, organisations and life of the town. A whole variety of groups have been contributing items for the time capsules which the construction company, Fleming Buildings, have inserted into the wall at the entrance to the new facility.

    From children in all classes in St Martin’s Primary School to those who attend the The Fraser Centre and Ageing Well Gentle Exercise Group, a range of ages have been represented in the capsules.

    David Orr, the Project & Development Manager said: “I have been extremely pleased by the enthusiasm of people to come forward and get involved in a project which will show people not only the history of the building, but will also give a flavour of life as we know it. We have a long list of those who participated and we are really grateful to them all.”

    Fleming Buildings Director Ronnie Burrows added: “When the new centre opens it will be an invaluable resource for the local community. We are delighted to be part of making the dream become reality.”
