Welcome to the Sgoil an Iochdair agus a'Choimhearsnachd (Eochar School and Community) website.
We are a small local charity, the main aim of which is to improve recreational facilities in the catchment area of Iochdar chool, which extends from the middle district in South Uist up to Island Flodda, Benbecula.
Following the completion of a community survey to find out what people would like to see happening, we have identified a list of projects that would be popular locally. We have already been successful in completing some of these projects, or supporting other groups so that they can undertake the work. We also have lots of ideas for the future.
Our next big project is going to be the reinstatement of the pitch beside Iochdar Hall. We have sorted out the lease, applied for funds, and have just received the plans, which is very exciting. If you have an interest in the pitch, please get in touch
Please contact us if you have anything you wish to pass on; all of our projects have been proposed by local people, and their success depends on everyone's feedback and input.
Current total in the fund for the pitch: nearly £40,000.
