Welcome to the Dornoch Community Centre
The Dornoch And District Community Association (DADCA) is a community organisation based here in Dornoch.
The primary purpose of DADCA is to serve the local community by promoting social, cultural, and recreational activities. We pride ourselves in being at the heart of the community and aim to bring residents together, fostering a sense of community spirit. Our main activities and functions that we typically undertake include:
Management of the Dornoch Community Centre (Social Club): The Dornoch Community Centre building dates back to 1845 when it was built as a school by McDonald & Leslie of Dornoch. The present "L" plan appearance was added by Andrew Maitland & Son of Tain in 1885. The school moved to Evelix Road (the present Primary School) in 1911, and the Schoolhill building was designated as a reading room and recreation place for the "men and boys of Dornoch" under the care of local Trustees. The rear extension containing the kitchen and toilets was added in 1979. In 2012 the Dornoch And District Community Association (DADCA) purchased the building from the trustees on behalf of the community and runs it to this day. Today, we host a range of activities that benefit the community as well as providing the local community with a space to hire out for classes, social events, children's parties, business meetings and much more.
Providing Space for our Community: We host a range of activities that benefit the community as well as providing our local community with a space to hire out for classes, social events, children's parties, business meetings and much more.
Organising Events: These include the monthly summer community markets held on the Cathedral Green and the tabletop & carboot sales held at the Community Centre. Fibre Fest - a highly successful event that celebrates all things fibre runs in March. In August we have Festival Week, which sees a huge turnout of locals and visitors for a great range of fun events for all the family.
