Welcome to Spittal Improvement Trust
Firstly, let us offer you a warm welcome to the Spittal Improvement Trust website.
The site has been set up by the Spittal Improvement Trust, more about us can be found through the various links, and it is hoped that it will not only benefit the whole of our community but our visitors as well, both physical and digital!
Spittal has had its problems in the past, namely the loss of local commerce and facilities, however, by working together we are gradually putting these to rights.
This website is just another way of achieving our goals of making improvements to our local environment and raising our aspirations.
We sincerely hope that you will find something of interest to you on this website and that you will come and enjoy our village with us.

Following on from last year’s success, Spittal Improvement Trust is inviting kids to enter the 2016 ‘LET’S HAVE FUN & TALK RUBBISH’ competition.
