Description

Corstorphine Youth and Community Centre is managed by local people, and is located in Corstorphine Village, which is a conservation area and part of Cortsorphine/Murrayfield Council ward. The centre was originally built in 1892 as Corstorphine Public Hall, and consists of an office/meeting room, a large and small hall on the ground floor and a masonic lodge on the first floor. The centre has recently undergone extensive re-furbishment which includes a complete new central heating system throughout.

Our centre is managed by a committee of local people who are elected annually at The AGM. There are currently 12 people on the management committee. The centre is funded by a small grant from CEC and rental income from groups and hall hires and membership fees.

The centre has two members of staff: Donna Robertson, the caretaker, and Caroline Anderson, the facilities co-ordinator.

N.B.

On 15th Oct 2013 the community centre was badly damaged by a fire. Plans have been approved and rebuilding has started at CYC. The CYC and the local community are raising funds to furbish and equip the inside of the centre. In the meantime CYC has moved to Corstorphine Hub, 191 St John's Road.

Where are CYC Groups?

Most of the centre groups have now been found alternative venues as follows:

- Indoor bowling groups have moved to the Rannoch Centre.
