Aberlady Community Association

Aberlady Community Association is a charity registered in Scotland with two aims:

• To promote Aberlady and the well-being of its inhabitants and its environs and to foster community spirit.

• To provide and manage a community centre (the Community Hall) where activities can take place in support of the above.

In effect, the Community Association consists of everyone who lives in Aberlady and is old enough to vote. It is managed by a committee of volunteers, which meets monthly in the small room of the Community Hall. You are very welcome at all meetings.

The committee is chaired by Donald Hay; treasurer is Ross Searle; hall bookings are handled by Hilary Wilkie.


The committee meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm. A notice with the agenda is usually placed in the window of the Post Office each month. Please come if you can!

The agenda and minutes of each committee meeting are archived on the Meetings page of this website.

Aberlady Community Hall

The hall is run by the Community Association for the benefit of the village. Formerly the Drill Hall, it was gifted to the village by the Earl of Wemyss in 1951.

It has four trustees: Archie Baird (Main Street, Aberlady); Iain Macaskill (Cockle Square, Aberlady); John M Stevenson (Marine Road, Gullane); and Andrew Smith (Main Street, Aberlady).
