Stow Community Trust

2 Hay Park Woods Stow Galashiels TD1 2SF


Stow Community Trust (SCT) exists to join in local community ventures to develop social, cultural and economic opportunities for the common good. The Trust is established as a company limited by guarantee not having share capital, comprising a board of volunteer directors and a large body of members. More information can be found on the Companies House website and you can also download our Articles of Association.

The Trust was established in September 2009 with the intention of developing the former primary school into a business centre with workspaces. This was an initiative that was first promoted by the Stow and Fountainhall Community Council and as the project developed, it was deemed more appropriate that a separate body be created to take the project forward.
