Auchinairn Hall demolition disappointment

Jo has expressed her disappointment that Auchinairn Hall will be demolished before the end of the month.

Following East Dunbartonshire Council’s cost-saving moves which transferred halls to community management, Auchinairn Hall has been unable to find an arrangement to maintain the premises.

Auchiniarn Bowling Club, who own the land where the Hall is situated, received an expression of interest by the Bishopbriggs ceilidh band to take over the running of the hall, but the proposal was withdrawn after an agreement could not be reached.

Commenting, Jo said:

“It is a great shame for Bishopbriggs residents that Auchinairn Hall is being demolished, and that no community solution could be found, despite the ceilidh band’s best efforts.

“Despite these vital facilities facing the axe as part of Council budget cuts, local individuals and groups have worked hard to safeguard the future of Brackenbrae House in Bishopbriggs, as well as others in Torrance and Bearsden.”
