Skirling First Thursday Lunch Club


Skirling First Thursday Lunch Club

The First Thursday Lunch Club will return in 2019 on Thursday the 7th February.

In the meantime, the great news is that £200 was raised at the special Christmas lunch towards the £1300 in total raised over Christmas events in Upper Tweeddale - this will be split 50/50 between CrossReach (the Church of Scotland’s social care arm) and the Cyrenians who help the homeless in Scotland's cities.

We would like to sincerely thank all our helpers for the lunch including Isobel, Katy, Sheila, Judy, Sarah, Paula, Alison, Nettie, Helen and Margaret.

If you would be willing to join us as a volunteer to help out with soups, sandwiches, traybakes, serving and chatting, please contact Isobel on 860274 or by email.



Youth Bursary Scheme


Clyde Wind Farm - Borders Youth Bursary Scheme

Skirling Community Council has been provided with a second year of funding for the 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.
