Information regarding Myreside Maynia...

This May, WFC members are being encouraged to take part in Myreside Maynia as Watsonians and friends join together across the month to raise funds towards the £600,000 target needed to reimagine Myreside Pavilion.

The team behind Myreside Maynia are encouraging participants to donate personally or raise a minimum of £26 in sponsorship for any activity they are able to do, either as an individual, together as a family or with friends and team mates.

To realise all Watsonians’ shared vision and complete the pavilion’s most ambitious programme of improvements since it was opened in 1897, there are four key projects that those behind Myreside Maynia would like you to consider supporting:

Creation of a hub for Watsonian Club members, staff, parents and senior pupils and other visitors to meet friends, relax and participate in volunteering and other activities. Funds will be used to upgrade and improve the event and meeting spaces; for the installation of a coffee shop; and to enhance the outside and entrance spaces, including a new ground-floor, decked viewing area.

Creation of exhibition, gallery and library spaces to house and display the Watsonian Club and Watsonian sections’ historic archives and collections.

Accessibility projects that provide access for all at ground-floor levels including the installation of ramps to all main access points to the building and a lift to the upper-floor.

Significantly upgrade the squash courts, with a new entrance and reconfigured layout. Upgrade the electrics, building access systems and install security cameras.
