Garve Public Hall
A sense of place
Garve Public Hall is a community asset, a charity (SC050402), run by a local voluntary Trustee Board. It is a treasured resource and has been a long-standing part of the community for over 100 years. It is a place where people, location and resources combine to create a sense of place - it is at the heart of our community.
During 2019, Garve Public Hall Trustees held an open event to put forward ideas for improvement and capture the community’s views on how the hall could support residents, schools, and businesses in the future.
Those who attended were in favour of moving forward ideas for renovation and redevelopment. This was confirmed by a Community Asset Feasibility Study which looked at the potential for a “Village Hall/Community Centre for the Future”, considering the views of our community. Questions posed were: -
- Option 1 - should we consider redevelopment and expansion of Garve Public Hall?
- Option 2 – should we look at a new build community hall?
The results from community consultation were: -
- 64% in favour of Option 1
- 24% in favour of Option 2
- 12% in favour of neither option
We are pleased to say that renovation is now well underway, working collaboratively with The Garve & District Development Company, and using community benefit monies managed by Lochluichart Community Trust and match funding from Highland Council's Regeneration Capital Grant Fund.
