The Saughtonhall Community Association (SCA) is a volunteer-run organisation with a hall and grounds to be used for the good of the local community. We aim to have something to interest everyone, and to foster a friendly community in this lovely part of West Edinburgh. Saughtonhall Community Association is a Registered Charity (SCO12605).

Our 2018 AGM was a great success. A healthy crowd of local people turned up to hear the latest news of the Association and air their views on future developments. In summary we can say that the Association is in very good shape, for example:
- healthy finances, which ensure that we can plan for the future with confidence
- lots of people coming forward to volunteer and help with events and activities, including a new vice chair and two members to support the Secretary position
- continued very healthy demand for use of the Hall particularly by individuals as well as groups.
The Committee will continue to work on longer term issues like improvements to the building as well as the regular activites. Also to be discussed will the membership payment system. As always, suggestions about future activities and anything else are welcomed, and anyone else who wants to get involved are invited to come along to a Committee meeting to see what goes on and how to get involved. In particular, we are looking for volunteers to help look after the grounds. If you would like to help please email us here.
After giving sterling service to the Community for 5 years or so, Kate is stepping down as Secretary. We would like to take this opportunity to thank her again here for all her hard work. As was pointed out at the AGM, our Association is now in a much healthier position than it was when Kate first joined up and a lot of this is down to her tireless efforts - not least in leading the Christmas Carols, an event which has become one of the most popular of the entire year! You will be glad to hear that Kate will still continue to cheer lead at our upcoming Christmas Carols event on 1st December.
