Blantyre Miners Community Resource Centre

Welcome to the Blantyre Miners Welfare Charitable Society and Community Resource Centre website. This website aims to give you a feel for this wonderful society as well as the individual buildings that make up the overall organisation. The Community Resource Centre is one of the major sections of the Blantyre Miners Welfare Charitable Society and was opened in October 2008.

The Resource Centre

Blantyre Miners welfare have always been keen on making sure the deep heritage which Blantyre is known for is not forgotten. In a recent 2005 consultation the community indicated themselves that as well as helping shape the new community resource centre, they would be keen to ensure that any new building has enough of heritage within to remind folk of how Blantyre was formed, and that was to include all that was good and of course less positive. Take a look at the Statement of Intent which should explain what the Charitable Society itself aims to do. Please click here to find out more about Miners Welfare Social Club.
