Skelmorlie Community Centre is having another open day on Saturday September 8 between 2pm and 4pm.
The aim is to make anyone who is interested aware of what goes on in the centre and hopefully attract some new users.
In particular the community centre group would like to establish a 'Local Cinema' utilising their projection and sound system. However they need some volunteers to help to organise and run it.
They would also like to create a Table Tennis Club and also need some interested volunteer help.
The group are open to any other suggestions for classes, clubs etc that people may want to bring to the Open Day.
The centre is used throughout the year but is particularly well used in the winter months with the following activities taking place: The Highlanders hold events for charity. A film show in Oct, a dance in Nov (this years dance will be special because the Highlanders has been going for 90 years this year), the Burns Supper in Jan and a Quiz in Feb.
The Attic Players present their performance in November.
Classes are held on Art,Quilting,stitching and photography ( the Camera Club holds competitions and field trips)
Keep fit activities include Zumba, Get fit in Thirty and Krav Maga for adults and juniors. Slimmers World also meet weekly.
Sporting activities include Badminton and carpet bowls.

On Oct 27th the centre will host a group of touring actors who will present a one act play on the wartime efforts of Rev Donald Caskie - 'The Tartan Pimpernel'.. Just before retiring in 1968 Donald was minister of the long gone Skelmorlie North Church.
The centre is also used for family events such as reunions, anniversaries, parties and some weddings.
