New Luce Community Trust


This project is looking at the green spaces we have in and around the village, and how we can maximise these to benefit everyone in the community and beyond.

The Trust would like to thank the gardening group for all their hard work in keeping the village looking so good.

Thanks to funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund we have been able to resurrect the Loch of Larg Curling Pond area and make this a nature area with the loch taking centre place, along with a new viewing hide, pathways, and parking area.

There is also an interpretation Board showing you various types of Wildlife that you may see when visiting the Curling Pond area, along with a QR code that takes you to a film of what the Curling Pond looked like many years ago when competitions took place.

We are delighted to have been working in partnership with Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere, and local primary schools, Glenluce and Castle Kennedy, to allow classes from the schools to visit the site on a monthly basis to look at climate change as part of their school curriculum.
