The Doune Rural Hall
is ‘Covid prepared’ and available for certain activities. These will have to follow Scottish Government advice and guidelines for public indoor spaces, be risk assessed and approved by KDT.
Belonging to the Community
The transfer of ownership of the Hall to the community was completed in June 2010. The Kilmadock Development Trust (KDT) obtained almost 100k to restore and fit it out as a viable village hall. The money was obtained from a range of funders, including the Climate Challenge Fund for replacement windows, along with grants from the Lottery, Community Pride and the Wind Farm Trust, and the building is now in a good state of repair. In addition, in more normal times, fund raising events are held throughout the year.
Over the years the hall has hosted over 20 local community groups, organisations and businesses and it is also used for community and other consultations. In the pre-Covid era, over 12 community groups regularly used it – Beavers, Brownies, Scouts and the Top Ten Club, plus Keep Fit classes and Puppy Training! It is also used extensively by local groups and organisations for meetings, presentations and social occasions, plus it is also a popular location for children’s (and grown-ups) parties, including a wedding reception.
