FARR COMMUNITY HALL
Farr Community Hall was conceived to serve the community living in the Farr telephone exchange area to the south of Inverness and fund raising commenced in the mid 1990s. In January 2000 the hall was opened, and although co-located with the football and shinty pitched on the Farr area it serves the whole of the Strathnairn Community Council area alongside the pre-existing Strathnairn Hall at Daviot.
At a recent Farr Community Hall Association EGM, minutes available here, the association was wound up and the assests transferred to the new Farr Community Hall SCIO, the new SCIO constitution can be viewed by clicking on the link.
The first AGM of the new organisation was held on 22 April 2022, minutes can be viewed here documents/farr-community-hall/minutes-of-hall-scio-agm-april-2022.docx .
It is hoped that the change of legal structure to a SCIO, which removes personal liability from trustees, might encourage more members of the Strathnairn community to serve on the board.
