PAST EVENT: Merkinch Welfare Hall Doors Open Day
Saturday, September 10, 2016 - 10:30 to 12:30
Merkinch Welfare Hall, 14 Grant Street, Inverness, IV3 8BL
The Merkinch Welfare Hall will open its doors to the public on Saturday 10 September for a unique opportunity to see the renovation works on the building in progress.
Built by the Temperance Movement in 1914, the building is now the subject of an ambitious community-led project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project aims to restore the building to its former glory, creating a gym and changing rooms on the ground floor (for the Inverness City Boxing Club) and a community support centre on the first floor.
To take part in the free Doors Open Day event, meet at the Bike Shed to collect hard hats and high visibility vests before entering the Hall.
The Merkinch Photography Group are recording the restoration of the building with Scotland's Urban Past, and photographs of the public may be taken during the day.
