The new Mearns Academy Community Campus is due to open in 2014. There will be facilities on the campus for Libraries, Culture and Heritage, Sport and Leisure and Community Learning and Development activities. Aberdeenshire Council Lifelong Learning and Leisure staff are keen to work with current users of the existing local facilities to ensure as smooth a transfer as possible to the new site for those groups and organisations and activities which will move there. People involved in such activities are invited to join short term working groups to look at the plans with staff, explore how the site will work for them and to highlight any issues if they arise.
The first meeting is planned for Thursday January 19 in Mearns Community Centre where we will be looking at Libraries, Culture and Heritage interests from 6.30 to 7.15, Sport and Leisure interests from 7.30 till 8.15 and Community Learning and Development interests from 8.30 till 9.15.
