Skirling in the 1920s



Historic Skirling

The Clarkson family provided some fascinating documents about, and photos of, events in Skirling in the 1920s - these include the Skirling War Memorial Dedication in 1920 and the Skirling Reading Room & Recreation Club Report from 1927-28, which includes the agreement to build a new village hall and details about a fete held to support its funding. To read the documents, please click on the links below:

Skirling Village Hall Newsletter

Reslating of the hall has now finished and we are very grateful to SSE Clyde Borders Community Fund for the substantial grant, without which it would not have been possible.

This means Skirling's social events are starting up again - thanks to the Village Hall Committee for pulling together a thorough newsletter.
