Three new member spaces available

Mosspark and Corkerhill Community Council is comprised of people who care about their community and want to make it a better place to live. They are people who have the time to give something back. If this sounds like you then please consider applying to be a member of M3C.

As well as representing the community to the local authority, we facilitate a wide range of activities which promote the well-being of our community. We bring local people together to help make things happen. We advise, petition, influence and advocate numerous causes and cases of concern on behalf of our local community.
