The Kirknewton Green Room celebrates its second birthday on Thursday 25th February. The zero energy eco building, developed by Kirknewton Community Development Trust (KCDT), has been self sufficient in heating and lighting thanks to a 4.0 kW solar photovoltaic system and high levels of insulation.
The Green Room cost £140,000 to build, supported by Leader, KCDT funds and hundreds of local volunteer hours. Projects run in and from the building have been supported by £250,000 of Big Lottery Scotland funding. The Village Hall, built over 100 years ago and redeveloped in 1968, has recently had a £20,000 upgrade funded by West Lothian Council.
Working alongside the Village Hall Committee we now have two spaces in a central location for events and groups including kids parties, movie showings, meetings for community council/gala/allotment association, training facilities, hot desk & study space, fundraisers, dance schools, PC repairs, communication skills for kids, highland dancing, keyboarding, boxcir, playgroup, crafting for kids & adults, pilates, babies hip hop, rainbows, brownies, art therapy, music for babies, baby showers, Zumba, job club, financial advice, bookbugs, sports for kids, cafe for kids, theatre and concert performances, youth club and a place to drop in for advice, a chat or a drink.
