Pollokshields Portacabin Presents Problems

Nan McKay Community HallWe have recently started work with Southside Housing Association and the Nan McKay Community Hall Management Group, preparing a business plan and assisting with the development of a stage 1 Growing Community Assets fund bid. 

The aim of the project is to improve the quality of life of the local residents of Pollokshields, through provision of a new community hub to offer a place to meet, socialise, and access services, activities and facilities. The hub will focus on meeting the needs of the existing local population by bringing together Southside Housing Association and Nan McKay Hall alongside a wide range of other partners.

The current hall is based in Pollokshields in Glasgow’s south side and has been operated by a group of volunteers and staff for the last 31 years. Originally named after a local resident and community activist, the portacabin hall is now well over 50 years old and in need of replacement. Working alongside Southside HA, the group hope to develop a new facility as part of a future Southside HA housing development.

We are looking forward to bringing together these different groups to achieve a fantastic new facility for this part of Pollokshields which will incorporate office space for Southside HA and community space for local residents.
