Moffat Community Volunteers
Opportunities to volunteer in Moffat
A new volunteering group in Moffat is promoting the vast range of opportunities for people to get involved as volunteers in the town. We aim to show people that volunteering involves a huge range of different possibilities, in relation to both time and commitment needed, and in tasks to undertake. Everyone is welcome to be in contact and have a chat with no obligation, and we are also eager to hear from other groups who are interested in working with volunteers and from people who want to volunteer.

Moffat Community Volunteers has been up and running since May this year, with the help of a grant from the Volunteer Action Fund. It aims to involve more people in volunteering, improve co-ordination between groups, and ensure all volunteers enjoy a positive experience.
More information is available from Jon on 221663 or 07812 914188

KITCHEN READY TO GO
Saturday 14th September 2013 saw the use of the kitchen for the first big event, the British Legion Coffee Morning, since its refurbishment. The volunteer ladies were able to enjoy the new units, with the range of stainless steel fittings and appliances.
The kitchen refurbishment has been the Community’s top priority for refurbishment since the original consultation on the fate of the Town Hall back in 2006. Thanks to funding support from Scottish Hydro Clyde Community Fund and Dumfries and Galloway LEADER Programme, the refurbishment has now been achieved. Instock, a leading commercial kitchen supply company from Carlisle, together with a local joiner and electrician completed the refit in time for the coffee morning. The new kitchen provides a much better working environment, and provides a greater range of facilities which can be used for catering during events
Peter Beck-Samuels, a Trust Board member, stated “It is great to see the kitchen refurbished at last, with up to date facilities and work surfaces.”

We aim to refurbish and redevelop the Town Hall for the benefit of the Community of Moffat and District
Moffat Town Hall is a Grade 2 listed, building built in 1827 as the Baths Hall for Moffat Spa
There have been some changes to the building, but little in the way of major refurbishment
The Hall was sold to Moffat Burgh Council under the estate of the Hope-Johnstone family [local landowners] in 1966
The Hall is now owned and managed by Dumfries and Galloway Council
It is in a prominent position in the centre of the High Street, and is a natural ‘centre point ‘ for the Town

FUTURE ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE TOWN HALL - We need your updates
The Trust has received lots of suggestions as to what activities might take place in the Hall once it is redeveloped. Do you agree with those suggestions, if so how strongly, and are their others that you would like to see?
