Barrhill Community Profile - 1901

Barrhill Community Profile - Predicting Future Population Growth or Decline
The population of most developed countries increased dramatically during the twentieth century which was mostly due to a fall in mortality rates. In Scotland, there was a progressive fall in infant mortality from 130 per 1000 in 1901 down to 10 per 1000 towards the end of the century. This was coupled with a steep fall in mortality for women of a child bearing age, particularly in the 40's and 50's. The impact of reduced mortality to bring about population growth, was slightly lessened by a fall in birth rate throughout the century, from 4-5 children per married woman down to 2-3. The overall effect however, should have been a significant increase in population, but instead, the population remained almost constant throughout the century at a little below 5 million.

Barrhill Community Profile- Access to Services
In rural areas where the population is by definition widely dispersed, the datazones are also geographically large. This gives rise to a wide distribution in access times in any one datazone and average figures conceal a proportion of our residents who, living in the more distant regions, are significantly more disadvantaged than the data indicates.

Barrhill Community profile - Education
Within the Scottish Index of multiple deprivation, the Barrhill/ Colmonell datazone has an index of 4 for Education, skills and training which is below national average- (1 is most deprived, 10 is least deprived). This trend is also reflected, to some extent, in the data for the 4 output areas that make up Barrhill.

Barrhill Community Profile – Time Line
400 million years ago, two land masses crashed together and Scotland became part of Britain. One local sign of this early geology is the Southern Uplands, created as one plate was forced beneath the other and sediment on the surface was scraped into a heap to form a line of hills. These hills are the southern boundary of our Barrhill area. ..........................August 1980 Barrhill Flood
Just after midnight, as customers were leaving the Commercial, water came over the top of the bridge and came gushing down the Main Street. Jock Strain told the Gazette “I have never seen anything like it in my life.” Water flooded down as far as the Memorial Hall and up to the Galloway and cafe opposite.

Barrhill Community profile - Health
There are 99 people in Barrhill district who have a limiting long term illness which is 25.58% of the total number of residents. This is a few percent higher than the figure for South Ayrshire (21.19%) or the national average (20.31%).
This average figure for the district however, conceals the high proportion of residents within the village who have long term illness (about 30%).

Within Barrhill, the type of housing available has frequently been taken for use other than continuous occupation, such as second homes and holiday lets. The demand for affordable housing, suitable for young residents wishing to have a home of their own, or for younger people wishing to move in, needs to be established.

Barrhill Development Association Meeting Draft Minutes, Monday August 18, 2008 at 7:30pm in the Memorial Hall
Forming a community company
FC and JOP had taken the decision to form a Community Interest Company further.
The name of the company would be Barrhill Community Interest Company.
It was necessary to decide upon the first subscribing directors who would be responsible for forming a company. Additional directors would be co-opted onto the board once the company was formed. All directors would need to resign at the first AGM and replaced by elected directors.
It was agreed that the maximum number of directors would be 9 and that FC, JOP and DH would be the subscribing directors with DH as the company secretary.
The Community Action Plan will be used as the basis for the memoranda and articles.
The Community Association will be approached to ask if the address for Barrhill Community Interest Company may be the Memorial Hall.

Barrhill Development Association Meeting Minutes, Thursday August 7th 2008 at 7:30pm in the Memorial Hall
Forming a community company
FC and JOP explained that many of the objectives in our Community Action Plan would not be considered as charitable and we would not be able do these if we were to form a company with charitable status. Being a charity does however have financial advantages concerning rates, tax and VAT. The advantages of a Community Interest Company which is a Private Company, limited by guarantee were outlined. It is a not for profit company, which can be quickly and easily formed.
After much discussion, CS proposed that we should form a Community Interest Company, this was seconded by LH – all were in agreement.

Forming a Barrhill Community Company
It was agreed that the company should have the power to receive funds from any potential source.
Both Frank and John had done a considerable amount of work studying the DTAS “Tool kit” about forming a company.
JOP gave an outline of the memorandum and articles and the name of Barrhill Development Company was proposed. Other issues included specifying a quorum, defining our area, the inclusion of non-residents, and support and training for directors. CS suggested having non-executive and executive directors.

Community Action Plan Strategies and Priorities - text only version
All the information that the Community Futures work brought forward – through the survey, the profile, the interviews and the Community Open Day – has helped to shape this action plan. In this section seven main development themes and priorities that the community is aiming for have been set down. We will move these forward both through our own efforts and in partnership with a range of agencies and supporters. The order in which they are set down is not significant but alphabetical; all of these are priorities!
