About Us

Originally built as a house for the cemetery caretaker, the building had become surplus to requirements by the 1990s and was standing empty. The policy of Dumfries & Galloway Council, which owns the building, is to sell off unneeded cemetery lodges as private homes but it was felt by a number of local people that a private home would not be appropriate for this one being situated as it is at the entrance to the Lockerbie Air Disaster Memorial and Garden of Remembrance.

In 2003 a group of eight Trustees was formed and with money awarded by the Lockerbie Trust the building was extensively renovated and developed into a centre for the local community, visitors to Lockerbie and to the Memorial Garden. The Centre was formally opened on 25th October and is a registered Scottish Charity.
