Monies Raised/Events




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.



Biggar Health Centre


Biggar Health Centre - Saturday Opening

Biggar Health Centre management are working with NHS Lanarkshire to meet the unprecedented demand on services.  At short notice they have agreed to open every Saturday in January from 8.00am to 12.30pm for urgent care only. Telephone: 01899 220383.  As stated this is for urgent care only with minimal staff available to provide this level of cover, please support them and only use as a matter of urgency.



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.



RBS Closure Survey


Scottish Rural Action RBS Closure Survey

The recently announced closure of 62 RBS branches across Scotland could severely impact on some or all of the rural communities those branches serve.

Scottish Rural Action will be presenting evidence on the impact of the closures to the Scottish Affairs Committee at Westminster on the 17th January. To do that effectively, they need to know what people in rural communities think about the closures. To take part in their short survey, please follow this link:



Youth Bursary Scheme


Clyde Wind Farm - Borders Youth Bursary Scheme

Skirling Community Council has been provided with funding for the new Borders Youth Bursary Scheme. 

The money is to allow children in Skirling, 18 and under, to participate in sporting and artistic activities that they would otherwise not have access to, due to our rural location and/or lack of funding.
