We are delighted to announce this new event for the Trust!
It will be held at Strathaven Hotel on
Saturday 23rd November, 2019.
Over the past few weeks, filming of some local folk has been taking place, telling their stories from childhood, reminiscing about their lives in Strathaven and the local area.
This is part of the Trust’s new project to build an oral archive of the local area. The event is being sponsored by Discover Strathaven and supported by Strathaven Hotel.
Tickets are £8 which includes tea/coffee.
Tickets are available from
The Common Greenery, 7, Townhead Street, Strathaven
or by contacting us via our email address
This is going to be an amazing event listening to some ‘weel kent’ faces from Strathaven! Perhaps afterwards you yourself may wish to volunteer to be filmed to add to our oral archive – or you may know someone else who might be interested in participating?
We also have the support and involvement of
Mhairi Anderson of Creative Strathaven
who will be gathering some demographic statistics during the event – in a creative way!
We look forward to seeing you next Saturday!
Thank you to everyone who attended our first ever Quiz night on Friday!
We had a great time – and raised a significant amount for our funds which will contribute towards our aim to establish a new, modern community museum for our area.
Here are a few images of the evening – and some of the prize winners!
We still have a few tables left for our Quiz Night on Friday 22nd February at Strathaven Golf Club. Tickets are selling fast!!
Tickets are £10 each (max of 5 per table) and price includes a ‘basket’ supper.
We are also looking for donations for our Raffle and Bottle Tombola. We have donations at the moment from local businesses – Strathaven Golf Club, Strathaven Hotel, Taal and Taylors plus many more prizes. Donations can be handed in to The Common Greenery or passed to any committee member.
You can visit our stall tonight at the last of our school fairs. We will be selling our Xmas cards with photographs by four local photographers. Packs of 8 cards ( 2 each of 4 designs) will be on sale for £3. We will also have promotional mugs, coasters, keyrings etc with the ‘I love Strathaven’ logo as well as various Xmas items on sale with the youngsters in mind. All proceeds go towards supporting our petition ‘Strathaven deserves its own museum’.
Come along and visit our stall at a number of Xmas Fairs over the next couple of weeks. Thank you to everyone who came along and visited our stall at Glassford tonight – Friday 23rd November.
Our Xmas cards have been very popular. They are all by local photographers and are all views of Strathaven. This year’s photographers are Angel Smith, Fiona Mackay, Anna McCann and Bob Wellcoat.
We also have branded merchandise featuring the I love Strathaven logo – mugs, coasters, keyrings, postcards, note books etc. Great Xmas presents!
We have a game for the kids, Xmas stickers, pencils etc as well as Xmas tea-towels for only £1.50! Another great Xmas present!

We also have collection cans in a number of shops and thank everyone who has so far donated. We greatly appreciate your support.
