Skirling Village Hall


Skirling Village Hall Re-opening - 14th September

The hall will be open for bookings from Monday 14th September 2020.  The committee has carried out a risk assessment, updated some of the booking conditions to reflect the current requirements and purchased sanitiser, hand washing etc.   Covid 19 posters will be placed in the hall and the sanitiser will be in the outer lobby to be used by all who come into the hall.  Please be mindful of the need to distance when coming into or leaving the hall. 

In view of social distancing requirements meetings/ activities will take place in the main hall and some events may not be possible at this time, e.g.  parties.  Please contact Katy Miller to enquire/ make a booking:  mob 07709 928515 or 01899 860252.

We will be closing the outer door as it is Autumn, so please when you collect your newspaper use the sanitiser.

Clydesdale Foodbank

via the Co-op, Biggar


Clydesdale Foodbank

A local Skirling resident has been in touch with the organisers and volunteers from Clydesdale Foodbank to see how Skirling households can contribute food to the foodbank more usefully via the Co-op in Biggar.

We now have a contact in Ben Waine, who collects from the Co-op every Wednesday at around 10:45.

If you would like to help out by allowing Ben to shop for needed items, you can contact him on 07772 378 597 and meet him at the Co-op on a Wednesday, where he will spend to your agreed limit on such things a fresh food for the foodbank. This would take no more than 10 minutes of your time and be very gratefully received.
