Members Meeting Thursday 8th March 2018


The Cambusbarron Community Development Trust will be holding a meeting on Thursday the 8th March at 7:30pm in Cambusbarron Community Centre.  This meeting will be to discuss the developments which have been going on towards purchasing a portion of the woodland on Gillies Hill.  We are reaching a point where we will need help from members in order to achieve this goal.  The agenda of the meeting will be as follows:


  • Welcome;
  • An overview of the Gillies Hill woodland project to date;
  • Discussion of future options and development.


Please come along to hear where we are with the project and we would love to get a few more people involved in helping us achieve our goal of safeguarding the woodland.

Outdoor classroom begins to take shape

Following our success with the Tesco Greenspace grant application, work has begun on the outdoor classroom in the woodland adjacent to the school. The trees are being thinned out, a circular path will then be created with bridges over the burn.  Many more features are being planned and watch this space for photos and updates.
