Recreation Group

In 2016, CCT carried out a Community Future Plan consultation, in which they identified a need for recreational activities in the local community.

A sub-group, Carsphairn Recreation Group was set up to organise these.

In early 2017 we asked local residents what sort of activities they'd like to take part in and when they'd be able to attend. We collated the replies, looked at the viability of activities and worked to set-up those which were most popular and viable. Click below for the results.

Rec Group Survey 2017 - Results

Since then we have set up -

  • Weekly yoga classes with a trained instructor.
  • Photography For Fun sessions, run by an award winning local photographer.
  • Free Badminton sessions.
  • Quarterly Ladies' Nights in 2017.

We're open to any new idea, so let us know if there's something you'd like to take part in!

Current activities advertised on the front page of the community website, on the calendar pages and we put posters on the village notice boards.

We're pleased to announce that, as of Autumn 2018, instructors and tutors for Rec Group activities will be able to claim 45p per mile (HMRC advised figures) for a return journey from their base to Carsphairn, claiming in arrears each quarter.

New instructors should contact the Rec Group to find out how to claim their expenses. Class fees remain the same to cover the instructor's teaching time, equipment, materials etc.

We hope funding this will help to keep our well-loved classes going and make travelling to Carsphairn a more viable prospect for tutors by making sure they are not out of pocket.

Rec Group and CCT would like to thank CREFL for providing this funding.
