In 2018 one of FDT’s original projects was to build a community Hub. Post Covid FDT checked with the community via a community facilities survey and the results suggested working with existing facilities and associated groups was preferable to constructing a new hub at this time.
Specific local buildings and facilities within Finderne
In the Finderne area we are lucky to have two community halls, Rafford Village Hall and Edinkillie Hall, the newly restored Boathouse Bothy and Stable Room at Loch of Blairs created by Friends of Blairs Loch ( SCIO), Rafford Church Hall, the newly restored Clubroom at Altyre Estate, the Long Room at Logie Steading and the Ting Hoose venue at Marcassie Farm.
