The new Community Council is now up and running. We ended up with 17 members, pretty good by any standards. I'm the chairperson (Dave Mellor), secretary is Lindsey Duncan and treasurer is Liz Walker. Contact us through email lochwinnochvillagecouncil@gmail.com  We'll be posting more information about the members, and their particular interests, as soon as we can.  

We are currently working on establishing priority issues to focus on. Among them are - Local Development Planning, Burnfoot Rd, the McKillop (refurbishment), the Parish Church closure, Local Transport, Climate Emergency Action. We're also going to make sure that Lochwinnoch makes good and fair use of any community funds that are available and will be finding out what the village needs in this regard.

The new Community Noticeboard (outside the McKillop) will carry all our information as well as posters displayed around the village, on this website and our Facebook page.

The duplication of Chatterbox and Community Council Newsletter will end and Community Council news will be incorporated into Chatterbox.

CC meetings will continue to be on the first Tuesday of each month in the Bowling Club (from 7.30) and we look forward to having a good attendance from the village each time.
