FAMILIES at a West Lothian development have been celebrating the launch of a multi-use community hub which will be part-owned by residents.

Children and adults enjoyed refreshments, including S Luca’s ice-cream at the launch of the scandi-inspired community hub at Dundas Estates’ Uphall Station Village (USV) development.

The developer put on the event to introduce residents to the new £200,000 building, which will be used for parent and toddler groups, exercise classes, and social events.

Each buyer purchasing a home at the development will also own a share of the building.

USV sales negotiator, Janice Gemmell, said, “From seasonal parties and birthdays, to mother and toddler groups, the community hub is very much a multi-purpose building and its use will be dictated by residents. Designed with social activities in mind, the hub provides a stylish and adaptable space for residents to come together as a community and build lasting relationships.

“For the launch, we are delighted to partner with S Luca’s ice-cream who have been serving up everyone’s favourite flavours from their van. Residents have been able to enjoy a range of activities, and refreshments to celebrate the opening of their new purpose-built space. We hope this event can give residents a taste of the community life that we are creating at Uphall.”

Uphall Station is a small community near Livingston, featuring three, four and five-bedroom homes. The Dundas development comprises 266 homes.
