Monies Raised

Between the Skirling Christmas lunch and Carol Singing and the 3 Christmas services, we raised over £1200 of which £500 goes to the Broughton Primary School towards their poly tunnel which adds to the £500 raised at Harvest Thanksgiving.  The remainder is going to CHAS. Thanks to all who contributed!


The Skirling First Thursday Lunch club will return on the 1st February.

Plans are being made for a Burns Day service on the 28th January - details to be confirmed soon.



Village Hall Update


Village Hall Update

As part of the refurbishment of the village hall, the Village Hall Committee applied for funding from SSE Clyde Borders Wind Farm fund for a new roof for the hall, prior to improving the interior of the main hall to match the small hall. The committee is pleased to let you know that they have been successful and the application has been approved. The hope is that the work will be carried out in the summer, when the hall is not so frequently used. We are very grateful to the Wind Farm Community Fund for the grant.

The aim is to seek further funding from various sources for the interior of the main hall later in 2018.
