Hunter Reid, Project Co-ordinator at Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust, said:  
“Funding from the National Lottery was crucial in allowing us to bring Maryhill Burgh Halls back to life and we’re delighted that the project has now been selected as a semi-finalist in The National Lottery Awards.   The project not only allowed for the restoration and development of these magnificent buildings, but it is also bringing a much loved hub for community activity and celebration back to life! 
 
“We are delighted with the feedback so far from both the local community and also visitors from further afield who are now able to experience the historically rich area of Maryhill.  We hope that they will continue to support us and, of course, vote us Best Heritage Project in The National Lottery Awards!”
 

The Burgh Halls Project
The project has brought three derelict, “at risk”, listed buildings in the heart of one of the most deprived areas in Scotland back to life -  giving a new focus for the local community.  It mixed traditional building methods with high-quality new build, to create vibrant, in-demand facilities for the area, including a public hall/events space, meeting rooms, a cafe, a nursery, community and commercial recording studios, heritage displays, plus over 10,000 sq ft of high spec office space. Complementing the buildings are a series of historically and socially unique stained glass windows from 1878, depicting the trades and working people of the local area, now restored and back on display for the first time in nearly half a century, alongside new artworks inspired by local people.
