Past Achievements of the Langholm Initiative

  • The Recycling Project - we supported this group in their efforts to organise a Langholm Composting Centre.
  • Langholm and Eskdale Music and Arts Festival - The Initiative set up this hugely successful festival that saw a fantastic variety of different perfomances and demonstrations. The festival gave confidence to the town to pursue the building of the Buccleuch Centre, the South of Scotland's premier arts facility.
  • Thomas Telford - we assisted in arranging a series of events commemorating the 250th year of one of Eskdale's most famous sons. More can be read about that here.
  • Broadband Grants - we administered £10,000 to local businesses.
  • Langholm Walks Group - we worked with them to promote the area as a haven for walkers that enjoy stunning scenery and a warm welcome.
  • Parliament Square Parking Area - the Initiative helped in brining a sorely needed renovation to the Parliament Square parking area.
  • Langholm Stayin' Alive - LEADER funded study for the Langholm Initiative investigating the outward migration of young people from rural areas. You can download a copy here.
