A new community hub in Glasgow’s East End will hold its official launch on Friday, following years of campaigning for one by local people.  The Calton Heritage and Learning Centre will hold a candlelit vigil for workers who were killed on the site of the new hub in a horrific accident over 120 years ago, as part of the launch.

The centre will allow unemployed people to prepare for work and college courses, or a Glasgow University degree, in addition to holding social activities such as bingo and line-dancing.

Thenue Housing Association helped activists access lottery funding and £100,000 from Morrisons supermarket to build the centre.
