Plan is to engage all clubs, sporting organisations, schools and community organisations Increase participation within the Hub’s area Create an environment where the local community could directly influence the sports activity that takes place in and around the Meggetland Hub. Create and actively promote a culture of active and lifelong participation for the long term benefits of the community Develop a self-sustaining sports co-operative that actively influences all aspects of physical activity provision within the area Create a self-governing Hub which delivers the visions of a Community Sports Hub model as outlined by sportscotland, whilst working in partnership with key partners such as the facility operators and owners Edinburgh Leisure will initiate the project but ultimately the group itself will become self sustaining and continue to deliver it’s objectives
