Launch for refurbished Clydebank Town Hall

28 May 2013

A £3.65m refurbished of Clydebank Town Hall has been completed with a launch event to celebrate the reopening.

Council Provost Douglas McAllister cut the ribbon to launch the Town Hall, following its £3.65 million refurbishment, in front of more than 300 invited guests at an event on 24 May.  The Council then staged a recognition event for more than 100 of its valued modern apprentices.

The Town Hall refurbishment, which took around 18 months to complete, was funded jointly by the Scottish Government, Scottish Enterprise and West Dunbartonshire Council and project managed by Clydebank Rebuilt.

Provost McAllister said: "The result is exceptional - we have a wonderful facility which does truly symbolise the heart of this community. The project has successfully managed to combine the old and the new, embrace continuity and change, and balance contemporary with history.

"In particular, I would like to acknowledge the investment and support from the Scottish Government and Scottish Enterprise.  This not only demonstrates a significant financial commitment, but more importantly, it shows the confidence we have about the future economic regeneration of this area and its ability to develop as a vibrant town.

"New life has been breathed into this important part of Clydebank and I believe it is a valuable step within this community's development and regeneration."

The launch was also a timely opportunity for the Council to recognise the efforts of its Modern Apprentices - during Scottish Apprenticeship Week - with around 120 of them attending the event. The Council has nearly 200 apprentices, with diverse backgrounds, experiences and skill levels. They undertake a broad range of roles, enabling them to learn and use a variety of skills, personal qualities and competencies which supports their employability.
