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 a community centre could be such a place It could also offer space for clubs for the young and old alike and perhaps shared office accommodation as well.

The Village Hall has now successfully raised the money to purchase the former Schoolhouse that adjoins the hall. The money for the acquisition will come from the Scottish Land Fund and RWE Innogy (the windfarm at Lochelbank).
An open day will be held to which all will be invited. There will be an opportunity to visit the Schoolhouse and share ideas as to how it might best be brought into use for the benefit of the whole community. The date for this will be advised.

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 has the trading name of Glenfarg Village Hall and, once the reorganisation is complete, 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.

Fund Raising


Fund Raise for the Glenfarg Community Centre!



Our target is to raise £12,500 from village activities.  

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!

One way you can help do this is by taking part in a kiltwalk and nominating the Glenfarg Community Centre as your charity.

The kiltwalk is the lowest cost platform for you to raise funds for the causes you care about.  You can raise funds for the charity of your choice and 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.

Heather and Cedric Wilkins have done so!! Why not sponsor them?   Or better still - join them on their kiltwalk.   There are kiltwalks in Aberdeen on 2nd June Dundee on 18 August and Edinburgh on 15th September.
