Based in the heart of Musselburgh, Fisherrow Centre is a treasured community resource. We aim to enrich the lives of the people in our community and to help them grow and flourish. That’s why we provide a space for local people to call their own. We strive to support all members of the community to find their voice through connection and activity with others. By providing hall rental in Musselburgh, affordable rooms to hire in a safe, accessible and central space individuals and groups can get together to share their skills, creativity and time with each other to positively improve their own and others lives. A fantastic venue for all.
On the 1st April 2006 the former Fisherrow Community Centre, which was run by a local voluntary Management Committee, became The Fisherrow Centre. The Committee dissolved its Association in favour of a Company Limited by Guarantee run by local people as Trustees. The Fisherrow Trust, as the Company is now known, is also registered as a Scottish Charity.
On the same day, the Trust signed a 99 year lease with East Lothian Council to take over responsibility of the two former Fisherrow School buildings. Before its dissolution, the Fisherrow Community Centre Management Committee raised funds sufficient to renovate the windows of both buildings and to repair the roof, rainwater pipes and stonework of the main building. The following funders made this possible.
Forward Scotland (Transforming Your Space)
Virador Credits (Aggregates Tax)
The Tudor Trust
Local Capital Grants Scheme
WREN (Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd)
The Fisherrow Trust is a Registered Scottish Charity
Mission Statement -To provide a safe, inclusive space to educate, train and enrich the local community.

From time to time opportunities for new trustees will arise to fulfill the quota of board members. We will consider local people who can offer their expertise, skills and knowledge, particularly in the areas of finance and business, to progress the aims and objectives of The Trust.
