Description

On 15th Oct 2013 the Cosrtorphine Youth & Community Centre (CYC) which was based in Corstorphine Public Hall (built 1892) was badly damaged by a fire. The CYC and the local community started raising funds to rebuild, furbish and equip the inside of the centre.

The CYC moved to Corstorphine Hub, 191 St John's Road.

However the old building did not meet all the requirements of present day use and Corstorphine Public Hall (CPH) are developing plans for a new and improved building. Part of the original Kirk Loan facade must be retained as the hall is situated within the Corstorphine Village conservation area. CPH and the CYC have through various fundraising efforts already raised a considerable sum towards the rebuild cost. However currently there remains a substantial shortfall.

In 2018, Corstorphine Yourh & Community Centre (CYCC) changed its name to Corstorphine Community Centre (CCC)

Cosrtorphine Hub...

Corstorphine Hub consists of an activity area where a planned programme of activities for various age groups and interests are held as well as our charity shop, which continues to raise funds for a new community centre.

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
- Wednesday Badminton Group is playing in Carrick Knowe Church hall
- The After School Club has managed to find space in the United Free Church
- Corstorphine Table Tennis Club is at Napier Sports Centre at Sighthill
