AOK planting day 2016

Making Old Kilpatrick a better place to live

Following a series of public meetings in early 2015, Action Old Kilpatrick (AOK) was set up by local residents of Old Kilpatrick who love, and want to protect and support the village. We have three subgroups: environment, horticulture and history & heritage.

WHAT WE DO

  • Environmental improvement projects in the village and surrounds
  • Horticultural and grow-your-own projects throughout the village
  • Raising awareness of and interest in the history of the village
  • Encouraging resident participation in activities linked to the three themes of environment, horticulture and history
  • Fostering good relations with the Council, local businesses, local statutory services and other voluntary groups
  • Securing funding for projects

Anyone can join Action Old Kilpatrick – we want to involve as many residents as possible whether you wish to join in just occasionally, or on a more regular basis.

AOK has three subgroups but most of our projects often include two or all three groups. We secure funding through local and Scottish government, the Lottery and other community grant and work with partnership with local community groups, West Dunbartonshire council and other agencies.
