Barrhill Community Council


The Barrhill Community Council currently has two vacancies.

Community Councils give local people a real say in matters such as local service delivery and other issues which affect daily lives.

Community Councils have a local and statutory interest in the planning process. Local Authorities are required to consult Community Councils on planning applications affecting their areas.

Liquor licensing and some other licensing matters may also be of keen interest to Community Councils and are areas on which Community Councils views might usefully be sought.

Anyone resident within the area of Barrhill Community Council who is aged 18 years or over and who is interested in becoming a Community Councillor should contact the Secretary as detailed below before 4th October 2017.

Church Services

All are welcome.



The Community Council would like to remind dog owners that "poop" bags are available free of charge from the village shop.
Please be considerate to other members of the community and clean up after your dogs misdeeds.

The use of "poop" bags has been successful in helping to keep the village clean but some people are still being inconsiderate in having very kindly bagged their dogs poop they have then just hung the bag in a nearby bush or tree. Being a generous soul I would like to think that they were put there with the intention of collecting them on the return journey of their walk rather than a deliberate act. Please dispose of "poop" bags in a hygienic and environmentaly friendly way.
