Community Day 26th February 2012
With so much controversy around at the moment with respect to relations between MAHR and the local community, Directors of the Aviemore Sports Centre project rightly wondered how many people would turn up to their Community Consultation Day at the Peregrine Suite, MAHR. They needn’t have worried! From the moment the doors opened at 1pm there was a steady stream of people keen to find out more about the project.

Around 200 people were given an opportunity to have their say about what they would (and wouldn’t) wish to see in their local Sports Centre. With support from The Glasshouse, a national charity working to help people make better buildings, spaces, homes and neighbourhoods, everyone was able to indulge their creative side and think about how the building might look. In addition, a scale model of the site was available, allowing folks to think through the possibilities of how to fit everything into the building space. There’s nothing wrong with a bit of blue sky thinking….! The event gave everyone a unique opportunity to feel part of the proposed development.

The Board of Directors were on hand to answer the many questions posed and were delighted by the enthusiasm and support evident throughout the day. New members and volunteers were recruited. Yvonne Birnie, Vice-Chair of ASC, was quick to point out that she had never doubted the support of the local community but said “I was thrilled by the support we got on the day. Local families came along and everyone joined in enthusiastically. It was a very successful event.”

Anyone who missed out, but would like to become involved with the project, should contact Yvonne on 07711318016. email:

The Board would like to thanks all who attended for their support.
