HARDIES Property & Construction Consultants has completed work on the new £500,000 Community Hub for EATS Rosyth.

Consisting of the Community Garden, Community Hub and Centenary Orchard, EATS is a project encouraging local people to get involved in making the town a better place.

The project was initiated by Rosyth Community Council and is delivered through Rosyth Community Projects to demonstrate how to transform previously unimaginative, unappealing green spaces into productive growing areas which bring all sorts of benefits to the community while inspiring others.

The new grant and charity funded Community Hub features a café, surplus food bank, teaching kitchen, private meeting rooms, private rentable office space, community space, and co-working areas for local start-ups or charities.

EATS Rosyth purchased the former Clydesdale Bank building on Queensferry Road in Rosyth due to a need for larger premises due to demand in the local area.

Hardies provided pre and post contract quantity surveying services and building surveying services while a property valuation was conducted by Hardies’ sister company Shepherd Chartered Surveyors.

Graham Rolfe, Hardies Property & Construction Consultants Partner, said: “We were delighted to have been involved as Quantity Surveyor for EATS Rosyth.

“The former Clydesdale Bank building had lain empty for some years, and it is great to see it brought back to life and into community use. The vision and work undertaken by the charity and its volunteers to support the local Rosyth community is inspiring.”

A spokesman at EATS Rosyth said: “Our new Community Hub means that we can continue to grow, eat and share in our own dedicated place.

“We are grateful to the Scottish Land Fund and The National Lottery Community Fund Scotland for funding and a special thanks to all our partners, volunteers, staff and local residents who support what we do.”

The EATS Community Hub café is now open to the community.

EATS Rosyth is a registered charity with the purpose of advancement of education, citizenship or community development, environmental protection and improvement, and the relief of those in need.
