We asked Dina of Breasclete Hall the following questions.
Tell us about yourself
Breasclete Hall is the centre of our community from which numerous groups and clubs run a wide range of activities covering all ages. The hall committee, who are all volunteers, host a select number of weddings throughout the year and the local primary school makes full use of the facilities to support their various needs including operating pre-school provision.
Why are you involved in Scottish music?
We love to support a range of music events and create opportunities for our community to enjoy them, take part in and produce live events for all to enjoy..
Any particular career highlights?
Julie Fowlis playing in our wee hall as part of the community outreach programme of HebCelt. But the community aspect of our venue and how that brings together folk across our area and indeed how all the volunteers help make any activity so worthwhile or enjoyable is always a special moment
What are your plans for the future?
Looking fiorward to another busy year when we celebrate 20 years of our communty cnetre in 2024
