Esplanade Buildings - The notices last month advised of the study which is in progress in relation to the Esplanade buildings (former Old West Kirk and Halls). As part of their options appraisal the study team are holding a public consultation session in the Pirrie Hall at the esplanade on Wednesday 5th September from 3p.m. to 7p.m. They are keen to hear how members of the local community both church members and non-members would like to see the site developed and used if it is transferred to the Scottish Redundant Churches Trust. This is an opportunity to come along to an informal drop-in event, meet the study team, hear how the study is progressing and share your views.

Saturday September 8th from 10a.m. to 4p.m. with historical talk at 11a.m.
