It would be good to see an increase in the membership, which has steadily fallen over the last few years. Your support is important and helps motivate the committee.


New Directors would be welcomed to join the Board and we would particularly welcome individuals who may consider a roll of office bearer (for example the secretarial or treasury positions on the committee). New enthusiastic people are needed so we can continue to provide the facility of a shop in Carsphairn. Meetings are held approximately four times per year. Application forms are available below or by request.


Please return all nominations forms to Rory Clark Kennedy, Knockgray farm, Carsphairn by 1 st June 2017.

Carsphairn's shop has been community owned since 1995 when the then owners decided to sell up. In danger of losing this valuable community asset, a Community Council steering raised the funds necessary to purchase the shop premises for the community.

Carsphairn Village Shop Ltd (CVSL) was formed to manage the shop and its tenants. CVSL is Company Limited by Guarantee and membership is open to all residents of the community.


After devastating flooding in 2015, the shop interior has been refurbished to create a light, airy tearoom while still retaining its general grocery section.


The shop business is run by tenants Lindsay and Paul. Please see the Shop page for details of their current opening times etc.
