Warm Space initiative

In partnership with Cornerstone and the Village Community Council, Cumbernauld Old has been invited by North Lanarkshire Council to participate in setting up a ‘welcome space’ for local residents from November 2022 to March 2023.

The Council will provide all the funding necessary and propose to open the small hall in The Wynd every Thursday from 12.30 -14.30 to serve soup and sandwiches provided by Cornerstone and, if possible, re-open from 16.00 – 18.00 to offer an early evening snack. It will be a place where people can enjoy some company and come together to “seat, eat and heat”.

Details have still to be finalised, but for it to go ahead it needs the help of the wider community; it needs men and women to volunteer to staff the sessions. Hopefully, enough people will come forward to make up a rota so that the commitment does not become too much of a burden.

If you want more details, please leave us a note as soon as possible and we’ll pass it on. Your help would be really appreciated.
