THE hall has been an active part of the local community and Buchanan Parish since 1925 and has been proud to provide residents and families support for social events.

Originally built as a war memorial for World War I soldiers from the local area, events of all types take place at the hall – ceilidhs, parties and weddings, and the hall serves as a meeting place for local clubs and organizations.

The committee meets at least four times a year, and announces its AGM through this site.

The committee can hold EGMs when necessary.  Please see below for confirmed meeting times, agendas and minutes. Its constitution is available here.

The Committee has learned of the sad passing of Angus MacFadyen.  Angus was a long standing member of the Hall Committee, and its Chair for many years.  His contribution to the Hall and local community was outstanding, and he will be greatly missed.  Our condolences to his family.
