Kirkcudbright Skatepark Awarded Charitable Status


Kirkcudbright Skatepark committee is celebrating having been awarded charitable status and formal recognition as a fully constituted group.

OSCR, the Scottish Charity Regulator, awarded Kirkcudbright Skatepark, a voluntary committee, with the good news just before the Easter holidays.

A list of specifications were required by the regulating body in relation to developing a skatepark in the town. These included the formal identification of a dedicated group and its board, the benefits for young people and the wider community and the outline of care and maintenance of the skatepark following its development.

The Kirkcudbright Skatepark committee, which is supported with information and advice by The Third Sector and Dumfries & Galloway Council, is now in a position to welcome donations from community groups and businesses who are looking to donate to charities specifically.

Alan McClure, Chairman of Kirkcudbright Skatepark, said;

“We are delighted at the news that Kirkcudbright Skatepark committee has been approved by OSCR and awarded charitable status. We see this as another welcome boost to the project which aims to develop an excellent skatepark facility in Kirkcudbright and would like to thank all businesses and community organisations as well as individuals who have helped so far.”

If you are interested in supporting, have any suggestions or wish to attend Kirkcudbright Skatepark Committee meetings please just come along to a meeting which is held approximately every 6 weeks and advertised publicly.
