Moray Sports Foundation’s Chairman, Sandy Adam, and young sports coach Carinne Taylor, joined CEO, Kathryn Evans on site for a turf cutting ceremony to celebrate.
The sports centre will be built over a number of phases which, the first, will take around a year to complete and create over 100 jobs, once fully operational.
Kathryn Evans is ambitious for the next chapter of Moray Sports Centre. She said:
“This is a really exciting moment for Moray Sports Centre and the people of Moray. Breaking ground marks yet another key step on the journey to opening a state-of-the-art sports facility and community space in Moray and has been the result of years of hard work. As the centre starts to take shape, more and more funding opportunities will become available to us to help make Moray Sports Centre everything the people of Moray need it to be.”
Morrisons Construction Managing Director of North East Mike Bruce, said:
“Our team is excited to begin works on the Moray Sports Centre project. We are looking forward to working with our client to deliver this facility for the people of Elgin and the surrounding communities.”
Earlier this year sportscotland awarded the project a £250k grant. The MSC team continues to seek funding and sponsorship.
