What is its background?
PORTKNOCKIE COMMUNITY ASSOCIATION (PCA) was set up in May 2000. It is a registered charity SC030090, and membership is open to all. The Association is managed by public spirited volunteers – currently 11 in number – and generally meets on the second Tuesday of each month in the McBoyle Hall in Seafield Terrace. And if you have the inclination and the time, we’d love to have you on board!

What does the PCA do?
The prime function is to manage and maintain the McBoyle Hall, the building itself being owned by Moray Council. This involves keeping the building smart, clean, safe, serviceable, and in good order. Primarily, the building has a large hall, a small (Snug) room, and a well equipped kitchen, all of which are regularly used by residents and community groups. Bookings for hires may be made, and at the present time the building hosts a wide variety of activities of which youth club, line dancing, table tennis, bowls, and private parties, are but a few.

In addition however, the PCA organises periodic fundraising events in the Hall and in this year, 2018, the next is a soup and sweet on Saturday 6th October. Also planned for Saturday 3rd November, is the annual village fireworks display.

Outwith the Hall other PCA activities in the village include planting and maintaining the hanging baskets and summer flower displays, keeping the Millennium Gardens spick and span, and the organising and setting up of the Christmas displays. Being looked at in detail just now though, are a revamp of the Millennium Gardens and a replacement archway for the west end of the village.
