Chapelside Community Facility

Facilities and Services

Chapelside Community Facility has been operational since 1969 when Chapelside Primary School vacated the building to move to their new premises. The building dates from the 1880’s and in addition to the Community Facility, it also houses the Richard Stewart Nursery School. The Community Facility is the base for a number of activities. It contains offices for Community Learning and Development staff, and Phacts (a youth health and peer education project). The North Airdrie Music Project and the Chapelside Women’s Health Project are also based there in addition to a variety of adult education classes and youth activities. Chapelside also acts as an Adult Literacy centre for the area.

The Facility and the Nursery School share use of the main hall, which also has a community cafe running most days. This front hall can accommodate up to 100 adults seated. In addition to the three office areas there is a large youth work room which can also seat 100 adults and a large creche facility.

There is one multi-purpose room that is used mainly for adult education groups and the Women’s Health Group. There are two sets of toilets, including disabled facilities and a large kitchen area that the cafe use.

There is a large computer suite within the facility with 12 workstations, which is the focus of much of the adult education work.

Part of the basement area has been converted into facilities for the many AA Groups that use the facility. A separate external entrance is available for these groups.

This facility is available for hire throughout the year.


Chapelside Community Facility is accessible by public transport and a bus stop can be found on Chapel Street. The facility is only a 10-minute walk from the centre of the town. For patrons travelling by car there is a car park attached to the facility.
