Donate and support
the Shed Project

There is an immediate aim to address capital funding for the refurbishment of the Outbuilding in Spylaw Park.


Our vision for the Community Hub project is to: 


  • Transfer the building into community ownership

  • Renovate, refurbish, and preserve this historic local building

  • Deliver a multi-functional and welcoming drop-in space to provide a daily sense of community 

  • Provide a community meeting place for local organisations to utilise and work collaboratively with others in Colinton and beyond 

  • Create a Community Heritage Hub to serve Colinton community and its visitors with facilities for social interaction, cultural exchange, and creative activities.

All the above will support an inclusive community space which will reduce social isolation. 

By developing The Hub in this way, the group proposes to preserve the building, currently underused and at risk of gradual decay. 

The total project cost is likely to be in the region of £670,000.


We now have an asset worth around £375,000 so we have approximately 50-60% of the funding needed for the project.  The architect has applied for planning permission and we would like to put spades in the ground by Autumn 2025.

We have also received grants from other bodies. But we need your help to realise our goals and the building’s true potential.
