Cube is committed to help building communities in the areas where we have homes. As part of this commitment we are involved with a number of projects such as youth initiatives, community centres and nursery facilities.
We are involved in community projects in some of our core housing areas such as;
Cube is very proud of its involvement in the restoration of Maryhill Burgh Halls. The Halls were opened first opened in April 1878 and are due to reopen in May 2011. Thanks to the Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust, this much-loved community building is being restored, remodelled and rejuvenated.
Cube Housing Association is one of three partner Directors on the Trust, along with Maryhill Housing Association and Glasgow City Council. Other directors all live or work in the Maryhill area. The Trust has raised over £9m for the transformation of the Halls into new community space, a café, nursery, music studios and offices. It stands alongside the new leisure centre and swimming pool opened by the City Council in 2010.
The improvement works, which started in Autumn 2009, are funded by a combination of grants from the City Council, Scottish Government, the Big Lottery, the Heritage Lottery, Historic Scotland, the Robertson Trust and other resources from the Council and the two associations.
