LET US KNOW  what is important for you!!


The Community Action Plan for Johnstonebridge –  is now concluded and we want to see what action can be taken to make things happen.

The purposes of the Action Plan is to    –   Help the local community prioritise and to push the right plans forward for action.    All the  ideas in the plan came from the local community.

The way forward for this community is to make Johnstonebridge to an attractive place to live and work.

  • new housing focusing  on family homes
  • sustaining the Primary School with more children  in the area  and  regular use of the Johnstonebridge Community Centre  for  sports, arts and crafts, events  or  just to meet up
  • road safety on B7076 with speed limits, safe crossing  and maintaining the cycle lanes
  • easy and safe access for all  to the service station as this is the only available shop in the village
  • upgrade and maintain green spaces, park  and  walks in the village area
  • create all year around outdoor space and woodland learning activity for all to use
  • investigate further youth representation and interest in all aspects of the community
  • possibilities of new business premises for business start ups  or others
  • successful and easy access to healthcare in Moffat or Lockerbie  for all locals

Currently, the Lunch Club in the Community Centre is a regular  weekly  get-together on Wednesdays, which is always very successful and enjoyable, with good food, laughs and chatter.                                               On Wednesday evening the Youth Club also established a strong group of young spirited minds who enjoy them self  with  snooker, table tennis,  arts & crafts, games  or  just listen to music and having a laugh.

Our Bowling group is enjoying  Tuesday evenings  and I am sure they work up a sweat and have a good time.    Other groups use the Community Centre from time to time  and the local primary School and Church are also very regular here.

To make Johnstonebridge an attractive place to come to we need to keep things going in the Village and in the Centre.  So please give your support to the Community and Centre  and come either to our offered activities/ events,  or even better  come to us  with a new idea which we can explore  and  hopefully make into a great success for you and others to enjoy.  We need you all.
