Queen’s Baton Relay Event

We shall be present in the form of a stall at the Queen’s Baton Relay event on Linlithgow Peel on Sunday 15th June. Why not take a break from the excitement of the Commonwealth Games to drop by for a chat with our lovely board members about how we can help to improve Linlithgow? We would love to meet you and hear your ideas if you can spare a moment between 10:30 and 14:00.

Kettilstoun Project and AGM

LCDT’s AGM will be upon us soon.

Queen Margaret Hall, Blackness Road is booked for 2pm on 15th March, and everyone is welcome to attend.

We are looking for new members to join the trust and for some new people to join the board of trustees too.

At the AGM, we’ll start with a display of projects/ideas. Some we are developing at good pace, with the support of local organisations, and others just ideas to explore with our members to see what they think.

The majority of the time will be given to giving a progress report on the Kettilstoun sports project. To hear your views.

We’ll also chat about community hubs, community energy, play parks, etc.

At the AGM, formal matters will be managed in terms of board members stepping down, being re-elected, new trustees, etc.

Ultimately this is a community company, run by local people, for local people. We need your support and encouragement to continue to do great things in our community and to re-invest any profits or benefit back into our community.

If you are interested in being a trustee and on the board, then please contact our Chair, Gillian Fawcitt.




We are now undertaking a survey of residents and local organisations to help shape the Community Trust’s strategy for the next few years.

– Surveys have now closed.


For the launch event, we produced a short video encapsulating some of the ideas from different people in our community.

The ideas are only tasters of the many possible projects which LCDT could get involved in.

Many thanks to all who helped in producing the film and participating in it.
