Ritchie Hall 2013

Managed by:

Strichen Gala Committee


Project Description

The project will deliver a programme of capital works to extend and improve the Ritchie Hall in Strichen, an important community facility in the Buchan area.  The construction of an extension to the existing building will allow changing facilities for sports and football to be separate from the facilities for Hall User groups, ensuring that the Hall meets the wider needs of the community.  The kitchen area and equipment will be upgraded to ensure that it is fit for purpose and the décor and lighting will be modernised to make the facility more inviting for income generating hires such as weddings and private hires.


Quote from Participating Organisation

Esslemont Watt, Fabric Manager of Strichen Gala Committee, said:

"The Strichen Gala Committee, managers of the Ritchie Hall are delighted in having secured a sizeable Grant from LEADER in Round 15 of awards.  This LEADER funding will go quite some way to completing the funding of our refurbishment project for the thirty four year old Community Hall.  This financial boost should now allow the project to commence in the Spring of 2013."
