Westhill & District Community Sports and Leisure Hub held its first AGM last night since being recognised as a registered charity. WDCSH is a volunteer-led community organisation and part of Sportscotland Community Sports Hub network. The Hub keeps going from strength to strength and has grown its membership over the last year to 15 member clubs. The role of the hub is to bring local sport and the wider community together. They are actively working to establish a youth presence within the hub to ensure their voices are heard. They have run courses in First Aid, Safeguarding and Protecting Children and Social Media Training, training over 45 local volunteers in total from a variety of clubs and groups.
The hub has supported local clubs, donating money towards the purchase of a community use defibrillator and supporting local charity SensationALL.
The inaugural Westhill 10k run last June was a great success and the group are in the midst of planning the 2017 run. Entry is open now and you can secure your place by clicking on the link here.
Members of the hub also masterminded the Wellbeing in Westhill event which saw over 30 local clubs, groups, businesses and organisations promote an active lifestyle to some 250 members of the public who visited on the day.
With new officer bearers and committee members set in place last night under the continuing chairmanship of Grant Coull, the group are on a sound footing to do even greater things in 2017.
