Location

Pinwherry and Pinmore Community Development Trust (PPCDT) was formed in 2017 with the aim of improving the quality of life for residents of both communities and developing community projects. 

A need was identified for a community space that was flexi and accessible for local residnets. The creation of a cosy space in the newly refurbished north end of the former school building, owned by Pinwherry and Pinmore Community Development Trust was identified as a solution.

As a result, the 'Old Pinwheery School Cosy Space' was developed, providing a fully furnished and equipped, warm and welcoming cosy space within the village. This facility enabled  the Trust  to tackle issues affecting their community such as social isolation, financial hardship, mental health and wellbeing issues.
