Lyle Gateway reopened after the Christmas break on Tuesday 5th January, 2016. Despite the wintry weather attendances have been excellent with good support for the various activities on offer. 

Lyle Gateway has been awarded a grant of almost £6,500 from the Big Lottery Fund through Awards for
All Scotland. These funds will be used to extend our project by adding more activities and longer hours of opening. It will also finance the purchase of specialist furniture such as acoustic screens to allow more
activities to take place simultaneously together with tables and chairs for the cafeteria area.

Indoor bowling equipment will soon be available and this will be supplemented by indoor curling, known as ‘Kurling’. Both these activities will be offered initially for recreational rather than competitive play. We would welcome a volunteer to develop these activities.

The Committee also plan that Gateway will continue after lunch for a trial period starting at an early date. 
Tea, Coffee and Biscuits will be available during these extended times.  

We look forward to welcoming new visitors and trust that many regulars will try their hand at these new activities.

The Annual General Meeting of Lyle Gateway will be held at 1.00pm on Tuesday,  8th March. Members and friends of Lyle Gateway are invited to come along and hear what has happened in the past year and what is planned for the 2016/2017.   

 Lyle Gateway appreciates the support provided by Awards for All Scotland
