New hub in Lossiemouth is just what the sports community ordered

Sports Clubs in Lossiemouth are being urged to attend a meeting that could see the development of a Community Sports Hub in the town.

The move is part of the newly created Lossiemouth Community Development Trust (LCDT), an initiative aimed to boosting a wide range of facilities in Lossiemouth for the benefit of residents and visitors.

Craig Barron is a community sports hub development officer based at Moray Council and tasked with the job of assisting communities in creating sport hubs as part of sportscotland’s 2014 Commonwealth Games legacy plan.

The aim is to increase the number of people of all ages participating in sport and physical activities.

Mr Barron said: “I am delighted to be able to discuss the potential of Lossiemouth being developed into a community sports hub and look forward to meeting representatives from local sports clubs to discuss the way forward.

“There is no cost involved for participating clubs who would benefit from being part of a community sports hub. At the forthcoming meeting in Lossiemouth we will be discussing the advice on club development that is available alongside funding, training and publicity in the area.”

Alan McIntosh is a LCDT board member sitting on the sub-group of the Trust that will study the potential for improvements in Sport and Leisure facilities in Lossiemouth.

He said: “This initial meeting is aimed at getting all sport and physical activity user groups in Lossiemouth together to discuss the potential of such a development in the area – and we need club/group agreement and support.

“The group we aim to form from this meeting will act as a sub-group to the recently formed Lossiemouth Community Trust and groups who are already supporting the development includes Lossiemouth Active School Co-ordinators and the Lossiemouth Community Centre.”

The meeting will be held on Thursday, October 2 at 7pm in the Lossiemouth Community Centre.

Lossiemouth clubs wishing to be represented are asked to contact Craig Barron on 01343 563644 or by email to
