The Pathhead Village Hall is run by the Pathhead and
District Community Association,registered Scottish Charity number
SCO12253. There are many ways for the localcommunity to contribute to the improvement of Pathhead Village Hall.
Why support the Hall?
The Hall belongs to the Community. Although there are other venues in the Village, for example the Pavilion or the Primary School Hall there are a number of compelling reasons to protect the Village Hall.
The Hall cannot be taken away from the Village as long as the Village supports the Hall. The Pavilion for example is owned by Midlothian Council who could withdraw funding at any time. This could not happen to the Village Hall. However, without the support of the community, the Hall could fall so far into disrepair that is would have to be sold and lost forever.
The Hall is the largest in the Village and has a number of unique features such as a large stage, stage lighting and the possibility of licensed events in conjunction with the Pathhead Sports and Social Club.
Can I donate to the hall?
The current level of hall bookings largely covers the running costs of the hall and basic maintenance. Additional funds from donations allow improvements to be made to the Hall to provide better facilities or new facilities to benefit everyone in the village.
I cannot afford to donate – is there any other way to help?
Yes, several times per year work days are held at the Hall. On work days we need people for cleaning, painting & gardening. We particularly welcome any assistance from qualified trades people.
