EVENTS

Service and Annual General Meeting – 16 June 2024

The third ecumenical service for the year was led by Rev Scott Brown CBE, who'd just returned from leading the memorial service for the Normandy Landings at the National Arboretum on behalf of the Royal British Legion. Scott reflected on the service of all those who had given in WW2, including those in our own community. The Sixth AGM followed and the Chairman, Willie Roxburgh, provided an update on progress we'd made in 2023. 

 

Late in the year we were awarded over £150k funding to install insulation, secondary glazing, external painting, new boiler, solar panels, sceptic tank and water supply from Forth Valley Lomond Local Led Development Fund, which was mostly completed by March this year. External painting of windows was delayed until better weather, and while we were digging the trench to instal the water supply, the contractor discovered unmarked graves – another route for the water supply feed has to be found! 

 

Tom Robinson Architects have finalised the drawings for the interior refurbishment, planning permission is in place and building warrants applied for. Trustees are working up a grant application to Heritage Lottery Fund for installation of toilets, and kitchen, creation of heritage gallery with lift access, redecoration and a host of heritage activities both internally and in the north plot. We still have funding of £100k from Fraser Foundation, and a build up of community donations.  Members were thanked for their on-going support. Next year is the 700th anniversary of recorded use of the Kirk and we hope to have a launch event toward the end of 2025.
