  • COMMUNITY CENTRE PROJECT

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: News

    No Comments

    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

    Artemis

    The Fraser Centre Community Trust is delighted to announce a £5,000.00 charitable donation from the Artemis Charitable Foundation for 2016.

    This is the third year of sponsorship between the two organisations and the success of the community programme has encouraged the Artemis Charitable Foundation to not only continue the sponsorship but to increase the size of the award.

    The Fraser Centre has introduced a range of activities for young families to enjoy including: Baby & Toddler Cinema; Family Cinema; Family Arts & Crafts; as well as a range of seasonal and school holiday events. Messy Play for under 5’s in partnership with Messy Nessies has also been introduced.

    Development Manager David Orr said, “We are delighted that the Artemis Charitable Foundation are continuing to support the work we do here. We enjoyed a great year in 2015 with their support, extending our programme with more regular events throughout the year. We were also able to introduce new events, welcoming organisations such as ComputerXplorers and Our Dynamic Earth to Tranent for the first time. With this award we look forward to providing more and more fun activities for families to enjoy.

    We are very grateful for all the support we have received from the Artemis Charitable Foundation which allows us to help make a difference in our community”.

    In 2015 The Fraser Centre welcomed over 17,000 visitors, an increase of 86% in two years as the Trust continues to move forward with plans to rebuild the old picture house into a modern Community Centre for learning, development, arts & entertainment.
