Coagh District Orange Hall has received funding from the SIF Community Capacity Hubs Project for minor capital works and refurbishment.

CWSAN was nominated in 2015 by the Northern Social Investment Fund Steering Group to manage a Community Hubs Capital Build Programme across Cookstown and Magherafelt.  As the Lead Partner Organisation, CWSAN is managing £1.1million funding from the Social Investment Fund and OFMDFM.  A number of Community venues are being supported for minor capital works and refurbishment.  These are -:

  • Moneymore Recreation Centre
  • Broughderg Community Centre
  • Castledawson War Memorial Hall
  • Coagh District Orange Hall
  • Ballymaquiggan Orange Hall
  • Lisnamorrow Orange Hall
  • Kennedy’s Orange Hall, Stewartstown

Architects have been appointed to each of the Community venues and it is anticipated that building work will commence in early Autumn 2016. The Project has a number of aims:

  • To regenerate and refurbish a range of public facilities that are underused and transforming them into more effective spaces, with enhanced public access for a variety of public uses;
  • To enhance the communities’ ability to deliver Social, Sporting, Health and Wellbeing, Community Safety, Youth, Community, Vocational, Community Relations and Educational programmes, projects and activities in Mid Ulster.
  • To rejuvenate the wider Mid Ulster area by bringing increased investment, promoting local recreational activity and by making a positive contribution to the social and economic prosperity of the area;
  • To provide communities with more visually attractive and shared locations for the provision of various recreational programmes and activities;
  • To increase the number of individuals and community organisations supporting the venues by developing more user-friendly facilities;
  • To increase participation by local communities following the physical development of the venues.

The Community Capacity Hubs Project will continue until 2017
