Uig Community Centre Association was established in 1995 with the aim of creating a hub for the community of Uig, Isle of Lewis.
The centre was opened in 1998 with funding from various bodies as well as £20,000 raised by the local community. The monies were raised by hosting meal nights, Ceilidhs, annual Gala days as well as other events.
In 2007 the centre was extended to incorporate the local Fire Brigade, a state of the art kitchen, meeting rooms, offices, IT suite and extra storage facilities. The facility is well used throughout the year by various local groups and individuals.
The centre is managed by a committee of volunteers, Uig Community Centre Association (UCCA). UCCA meet monthly to plan fundraising events and discuss operational matters to ensure the Centre is functional for everyone in the community. Minutes of these meetings are available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org
