One of the intentions of the Woolmill Trust when it was set up was to garner support form the local community to allow the wider community to feel a sense of participation in the project.
The Trustees of the Woolmill would welcome enquiries from those wishing to become Members of the Trust. A fee of £1 annually would be charged for membership, and with membership would come voting rights at the AGM.
Those wishing to join as Members would be showing their willingness to become involved with the Trust in its efforts to keep the Knockando Woolmill, its machinery and environment as a flourishing historical and manufacturing site for future generations.

The Knockando Woolmill Visitor experience app tells you about the history, heritage and production techniques of the Woolmill. Using beacon technology, your app will alert you to information as you roam the site, displaying video, images and text relevant to your location.
You can also use the app to learn about the Woolmill from anywhere in the world using the homepage navigation and detailed pages about the machines.
Download now: Search for ‘Knockando’ on the App Store and the Google Play store. The app is free of charge, but will require your location services and bluetooth to be enabled for the beacons to activate notifications.
Archie the Coo-Van and three Coo-Visors visited the Woolmill today...
The aim of the Coo-Van "is to engage with locals and visitors to Scotland, providing inspiration and extending the personal touch that the traditional visitor centres already have. Being “out in the field” means that information can be accessible and we can pass on details of attractions and other things to see in the area and across Scotland."
The vans that have been designed to look like Highland cows "are very friendly and photogenic and love to have their photo taken." So if you see them on your travels take lots of photos and "share your images on social media using #ScotSpirit."
If you would like to find out more about the Coo-Vans, please visit their website.
