Amanda Domin, Chairwoman of the Philiphaugh Management Committee

“We have recently made a number of exciting new appointments to the Committee and are keen to see the Centre develop into a thriving facility that can cater for the needs of the local and wider Selkirkshire community. We have a good range of classes and activities currently on offer, however we are always looking for fresh ideas and welcome people’s suggestions to provide something new - please do get in touch.”

Donna Manson, Service Director Children and Young People

“This is a wonderful facility which local people are encouraged to make the most of, taking the chance to venture out into their community, meet new friends or catch up with existing ones, while maybe learning a new skill at the same time.”
