Carsphairn Heritage Initiative

Carsphairn Heritage Initiative (CHI) has been set-up to make it possible to transfer Carsphairn Heritage Centre into community ownership. CHI's charitable purposes are:

  • The advancement of education.
  • The advancement of the arts, heritage, culture or science.

CHI is dedicated to continuing the work started by Heritage Group to digitise their collection and to take ownership of Carsphairn Heritage Centre.

See more about these two exciting projects on these pages:

We became a SCIO on 26th February 2020. You can see our OSCR page here:

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, OSCR have agreed an extension to set up the new SCIO.

The Trustees of CHG are currently working to transfer the assets to the new group and our first General Meeting will be held later in the year, when we will be appointing new Trustees.

Until then, the interim trustees of CHI are:

Karen Hall

Heather Hickman

Darren Challis
