ABOUT THE TRUST

Kilmaronock Old Kirk Trust is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated  Organisation (SC047874), formed in October 2017 in response to the closure of Kilmaronock Old Kirk, a grade-B listed classical building with a long history of community use.  

 

The Trust was formed to save and enhance the historic environment of the old kirk building and surrounding area and to benefit the communities of Gartocharn and Croftamie, which lie within and form the parish of Kilmaronock, as well as visitors to this part of the Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park.

 

The organisation currently has membership of 58. It is led by a board of nine trustees with a broad range of professional and practical skills and experience. The trustees meet regularly to monitor progress, manage  membership and communications, review finances and plan activities.

The Trust has taken on the ownership of the Old Kirk on behalf of the community, and will oversee activity within the building. Most activities will be delivered by the many active community groups within Gartocharn and Croftamie, with the Trust, through its board of trustees, acting to promote and facilitate use of the building, as well as organising periodic fundraiser events.
