About Kirkhill Community Centre
Kirkhill Community Centre is a much loved, respected and well used community centre in the heart of Kirkhill village, consisting of a:
- Main sports hall
- MUGA (outside all weather enclosed games area)
- Williamson Room for smaller meetings and activities
- Grass pitches
The facility has benefited over the years from the generosity of the community mainly through fundraising events, most notably the Kirkhill Gala which allows the building to be maintained and looked after to a high standard.
The Management Group are currently investigating changes to the heating system and other energy efficiencies to move our building towards Net Zero.
