ABOUT US - A BRIEF INTRODUCTION

A BRIEF HISTORY

The present Community Centre started life as Easter Langlee Primary School, built in 1971 to serve the new housing community on the north side of the main Melrose Road. A "Change of Use" came in 1985 with part of the building becoming the Community Centre and the other part being retained as Council offices. There is a joint reception desk at the Main Entrance serving both Community Centre and Council offices.

Responsibility for the Community Centre was eventually transferred to "Live Borders", Sport & Leisure Trust in 2017.
The day-to-day running of the Centre continues to be vested in the Community Centre Management Committee aka the "House Committee" made up from representatives of the "affilliated" groups and others who use the Community Centre throughout the year.

THE COMMUNITY CENTRE
The Community Centre is based on two levels with the upper level from
the Main Entrance and Reception to the MAIN HALL.
Additionally, the COMMUNITY CAFE/IT facilities, KITCHEN & QUIET ROOM
are also on this level with a separate entrance from the "Disabled" car park

The Lower Level (only a few steps down) has several former classrooms,
now named the RED, BLUE, GREEN and YELLOW ROOMS,
