Community Development Trust

Pinwherry and Pinmore Community Development Trust was formed in 2017 with the aim of improving the quality of life for residents of both communities and developing community projects. The Board comprises 7 Trustees and 52 members who meet monthly at a joint meeting with the Pinmore Community Association.

These meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30pm in Pinwherry Community Hall and are open to all members. Please do come along!

Matters arising are discussed and decisions are agreed upon by the trustees, which are then communicated to the members for further discussions and review if required.
