About Us


About Us
Ever since the closure of the Glenfarg Hotel three years ago, the village has lacked a place for all to meet informally and socialise. The creation of the Glenfarg Community Centre will provide such a place.  It will also offer space for clubs for the young and old alike and perhaps shared office accommodation as well.  A café/bistro will serve meals during the day, as well as morning coffee and afternoon tea.

The Village Hall has now successfully raised the money to purchase the former Schoolhouse that adjoins the hall. The money for the acquisition has come from the Scottish Land Fund and RWE Innogy (the windfarm at Lochelbank).
An open day has been held in the house and around 70 people visited and saw the potential of the proposed Centre. Ideas have been shared about how the Schoolhouse might best be brought into use for the benefit of the whole community. A Business Plan has been prepared based on these ideas, and funding is being raised to complete the conversion of the house and to link it with the Village Hall.

This is an exciting opportunity for our village! We hope that everyone will wish to give their help and support as the project moves forward. There will be plenty of opportunities for groups and individuals to lend a hand to make this a success - and to make a big difference to Glenfarg.

Membership


The Glenfarg Community Centre needs your support and membership! The village Hall is reorganising into a Scottish Incorporated Charitable Organisation or SCIO (Charity Number SC048505).  This gives the Trustees limited liability and also has enabled the hall to raise the funds to create the new Glenfarg Community Centre (which would not have been possible as an unincorporated Association).  The SCIO is called Arngask HalI.  It will trade as Glenfarg Community Centre.



The new SCIO needs to demonstrate strong village support through a wide membership base. This support is vital if funding applications for development of the Schoolhouse are to be successful. Everyone 16 years old and over in the Glenfarg Community Council area is eligible for membership.

You will not be asked for money (it's free). You will not be roped into anything although we would appreciate your help. All we require is you demonstrate your support by becoming a member. You will then have an opportunity to attend members meetings and the Annual General Meeting to voice your opinion.  

Trustees would like everyone to sign up and show they care about the place the hall has in our community. You can see our privacy statement here.

News


Cinderella



In January 2020, pantomime came back to Glenfarg after a 30 year gap. 'Cinderella' was produced by Glenfarg Arts Project in association with Emma Mackie and Jack Simpson.

After all costs were deducted, just over £1,700 was raised from the Panto, which GAP increased to £2,000. The knitting group donated a further £100.00 which gave a total of £2,100.00 for Hall funds.

Cedric Wilkins chair of the Hall Committee said "That is an amazing achievement!  On behalf of the Hall Committee I would like to thank all those who worked so hard to put on a wonderful performance.  You can be sure that the funds will be wisely spent on the exciting plans for the future Community Centre."

Fund Raising


Fund Raise for the Glenfarg Community Centre!



Our target is to raise £12,500 from village activities. So far we have raised an amazing £8,500.  We still need that bit extra to buy what we will need for the Centre before it opens later this year.

Mary McAinsh and Margaret Scott started the ball rolling with their Bingo Night which raised £240 for the Community Centre. Thanks Mary and Margaret!

Our weekly Coffee Lounge also raises money for the Centre. Thanks to our volunteers who keep the Lounge going from week to week!

The annual Kiltwalk saw five members of the community walking around Edinburgh and raising over £2500 for the Centre.  Thanks to all who took part in this event - and those generous people who sponsored them.

The Kiltwalk is a low cost platform for us to raise funds. 140% of the money you raise will go directly to where it is needed most. This is because for every £1 you raise a further 40 pence is added by the Hunter Foundation. Visit www.thekiltwalk.co.uk and choose Glenfarg Community Centre as your charity.  We plan to do the walk again this year.

A generous donation has been received from local buseiness, Earnside Coaches.  A big thank you to the Rutherford’s for this.  We have also received a kind donation from the Knitting Group.  Thank you for this.

And finally, the wonderful Panto raised an amazing £2,000 for the Community Centre!  Well done to all involved.  This was a tremendous event which sold out over two nights.  Brilliant!
