Lisbarnett & Lisbane
Community Association


About us

Lisbarnett & Lisbane Community Association came about as a result of a public meeting of local residents in the nearby Kilmood Parish Church Hall in August 1996 to discuss housing development in the Lisbarnett and Lisbane area. 

One of the Association’s first aims was to deal with the lack of facilities for younger and older people, as there was no meeting place, churches or schools within the immediate area. 

A Youth Club was set up in the darts room of Lisbarnett House, senior citizens outings and events were held and flowerbeds planted.

In the late 1940s this rural community had funded a residence for the district nurse and a baby clinic at 16 Lisbarnett Road which later  became the doctors surgery. This building  had become vacant when a new Health Centre was built in 1993 and the Association managed to secure a long lease on the building. With funding from the Lottery, Peace II, and other sources together with local fund raising, they were able to refurbish to the standards required for a modern Community Centre.

The Community Centre is today run by local volunteers as a neutral venue for activities that are inclusive and available to the whole community.

The Community Centre is available to hire for all sorts of events – from parties to meetings, workshops to classes.
