The aims of this website

This community website aims to provide accurate and up to date information about Lochwinnoch. This website came about due to the changing pressures on this rural community. Although only 20 miles west of Glasgow the village is classified as rural and struggles with the problems of poor transport infrastructure and declining local services. With the loss of traditional industries the community is adjusting to the growing number of home office businesses and new housing developments. The website aims to help integrate the influx of new residents into the community, to increase communication and to promote new and existing local services and businesses.
