Project aims:
To create a new community centre containing a community room for the town of Aviemore and surrounding communities.
To maximise best value by sharing the cost facilities both internal and external to the building
To improve cultural, social, sport and skill training opportunities for the local community
To empower the community through confidence building in the form of developing organisational skills, provide volunteering opportunities and enabling participation in a wide variety of activities.

Project activities:
Aviemore Community Children’s Group (60 children x5 days per week)
Women’s Rural Institute (12 people once a month)
Aviemore Keep Fit Group (60 people per week)
Aviemore Folk Club (150 once a month at Dance – all ages)
Aviemore Boys Club (20 young boys monthly)
Scottish Country dance club (Older people – 30 each month)
Aviemore Community Council (once per month)
Chess Senior group (6 once per month)
Badenoch and Strathspey Branch of Scottish National Party (Quarterly)
Badenoch and Strathspey Branch of |Labour Party (Quarterly)
Aviemore sewing group (weekly)
Strathspey Modellers (Twice per annum)
RAF Mountain Rescue (6 times per annum)
The Playing field used weekly by two football clubs and other sports

Owing to the dilapidated state of the present building some groups have gone elsewhere, even to neighbouring villages, we expect them to come back and the use of the hall to increase markedly, because meeting facilities are scarce and expensive in Aviemore
