Coffee time at The Cottage

The Cottage community centre in Dalhousie Street, Edzell will be holding a coffee morning on Saturday, April 16 from 10 am to 12 noon to celebrate the end of an era.

After 40 years the Cottage is temporarily closing its doors on Tuesday, April 19 to prepare for a major upgrade.

As part of the upgrade the Cottage will benefit from the installation of central heating, a new kitchen and new disabled toilet facilities which will bring the centre up to the current health and safety regulations and allow it to continue its role of providing a venue that is suitable for a lunch club, small coffee mornings, meetings and other activities such as the knitting group.

Run by volunteers, the Cottage provides a place where elderly and disabled people can enjoy meals, coffee, companionship and gentle activities.

The Cottage also provides an intimate environment where other community organisations can meet at a low cost, including young and old.

To carry out the upgrade the Cottage has received funding from The Scottish Government and European Community Rural Tayside LEADER 2007-2013 Programme for £13,922 and the Angus Council Community Grant Scheme for £5,000 but continues to fund-raise itself for the internal decoration, carpets and soft furnishings.

The Cottage invites you to pop along to the coffee morning and enjoy a look back over the last 40 years and support them as they look to the future.
