Midsteeple Quarter Public Benefit Launch

MSQ BenCom Launch Midsteeple Quarter

After months of planning, negotiating and hard graft, the moment is here….

Saturday 7th April (11am-3pm) sees the public launch of the Community Benefit Society for the Midsteeple Quarter project. All are welcome – all are invited to a day of fun, music and solidarity in support of a new beginning for our town centre.

Everything will be happening on the streets around the Midsteeple and The Stove – there will be music, speeches, entertainers, Midsteeple People merchandise and everyone is invited to sign up to join the Midsteeple Quarter Society – membership is free and, as a member, you’l have a say in owning and directing this very special project for the future of our town.

The Public Launch event is the first outing for the Doon Toon Army – the community movement to support Midsteeple Quarter and bring about change by making practical improvements in the town centre.

There is another way…

Midsteeple Quarter is a means by which local people can once more create a town centre that brings opportunity and prosperity for everyone in our community.

Midsteeple Quarter is a Community Benefit Society that everyone can join – it is like an old fashioned ‘building society’ something that we all own and have an equal say in directing.

Midsteeple Quarter aims to take ownership of a group of disused buildings on our High Street…refurbish them…and steward them for the community as affordable enterprise space at street level and rent out good quality flats on the floors above.
