Refurb Update : Closure of Letham Community Hub
The construction and refurbishment work to the former Letham Recreation Centre is about to start. The contract was awarded by Perth and Kinross Council to Clark Contracts, and they will take control of the building and site in the very near future.
Letham4All will continue to operate in the community throughout the approximate 12 months of the works. Please click here to see the venues, days, and times of Letham4All and community projects that will be taking place while we are out of the building from the 29th of November 2021.
To help clear the building Letham4All will be holding a Community Take it Away Week. We will be offering members of the community to come and help themselves to lots of different things we have managed to collect while we have been in the building in the last 2 years. There will be no charge for anything we just want to find stuff new homes and prevent it from going in the bin. More information on the datewill be posted soon on our social media channels.
The Letham4All Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 24th November at 7.00pm in the Letham Community Hub and the last event in the old building will be at the Letham Community Christmas Fair , being held on Saturday 27th of November , from 11am until 2pm . Please come along and help us celebrate .
The project is going ahead as result of funding from Perth and Kinross Council and the Scottish Governments’ Capital Regeneration Grant Funding.
The National Lottery have also contributed with funding that will enable Letham4All to own the building and ensure it remains in community ownership for the future.
After the building works are completed the Letham Community Hub will have a ground floor Community Gym, an improved Sports Hall, Community Kitchen and Soft Play area, multi-purpose rooms and space for a range of health and well being activities. The changing village will also have disabled facilities that meet the Changing Place Standard and lift to the upper floor, making the whole building accessible.
We will be changing the entrance to the building so the front door will face the Rannoch Road Park, and there will be small car park, complete with an electric vehicle charging point and disabled carparking spaces and a bike park.
There will also be extensive improvement works happening at the same time to the Rannoch Road Park. The existing hard surface basketball court will be moved further down the park and the children play equipment will renewed and moved nearer to new building.
It is planned that the construction will start at the end of August this year, with Letham4All vacating the building by the end of July. We believe the works will take a round 12 months to complete.
All the organisations who use the building have been informed about the closure and Letham4All are working to secure some venues to carry on their projects while the building work is being done. Letham4All will keep updating on the progress of the project via this webpage and will be posting posters of the design and information in the community. We will also be offering the community to find out more very soon through a Zoom Meeting and when it is safe to do so at a public meeting.
