Our goals are to provide services and facilities for recreation and other leisure time facilities for the Earlston area following principles of sustainable development and in the interests of social welfare so that local people’s conditions of life may be improved, and to provide an example of best practice for similar organisations both regionally and nationally.
We are a membership organisation that is open to everyone in the Earlston area and are fully accountable to our community in line with our constitution and charitable status. We also have a public AGM and publish our annual accounts and our minutes. We always welcome new members to ECDT. If you are interested in joining us please complete the form below.
We are an independent organisation but always seek to work in partnership with the community, public and private organisations. We are keen to investigate the possibility of generating income from community owned assets to reduce the need for grants and end provide financial surpluses that can be reinvested in the community.
