Community Groups

Newcastleton has a number of community led groups covering a variety of interests, with a warm and friendly welcome from all.

Known locally as LLAGS, we were formed in 1971 by a group of young women in the village of Newcastleton who wanted ‘to make a difference’. They certainly have!


We are a local group who look after the floral tubs in Newcastleton square.
