At our 2017 Annual General Meeting in May, we stated that we planned to change our organisation's legal entity to a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), a legal structure which has been purpose built for the charity sector in Scotland. We have now completed all the formalities, and are a SCIO.
Our Constitution is virtually identical to the original Company one, so our objectives remain the same. So as far as our members, and non-members, are concerned, there is no change in the way we will endeavour to fulfil the wishes of the community.
If you wish any further information on SCI’s, please Google – “SCIOs: A Guide”.
Our organisation has been approved by HMRC as being eligible for Gift Aid. This means that if you are a tax payer, any donation you make to the Trust, by whatever means. allows us to claim back from HMRC twenty five pence for every pound donated.
Scottish Charity Number is SC045261Save

A Big Well Done to those 18 Volunteers!,.......... who Drained the Adult exercise area on Sunday the 19th March 17. A drain was located & connected to, which was a big improvement to the planned soak-away. This should enhance the experience of the users of this equipment, as well as generally drying the adjacent areas.
You will have noted that your Trust has completed the planned improvements to the main path in the Glen, having made it suitable for wheelchairs and prams, and manageable by those not so able to use the old path which had so many rough parts. New entrances and sign boards have been erected.The route over the west side of the Glen has been improved as much as we can at this stage, and is suitable for the more agile! Finally, the path round the playing field has had an addition to it made – so that you can walk or jog around the playing field without having to run on to grass or the car park.
