05 February 2018

Community groups and charities serving Dunadd, West Loch Fyne and Lochgilphead are being urged to apply to the Ventient A’Chruach Community Wind Farm Fund, before the next deadline of 30th March.

The Fund was established to support community-led activity that is strategic, positive and creative, and improves the communities of West Loch Fyne, Dunadd and Lochgilphead.

During 2017, the Fund supported 18 groups distributing over £130K. Awards were made to projects addressing fund priorities; enhancing infrastructure, provision of activities for young people, developing enterprise, encouraging tourism and developing community services.

Beneficiaries included, Artmap Argyll Ltd to support the running of the Lantern Festival; Mid Argyll Transport Volunteers to help cover annual running costs; 19th Argyll Lochgilphead Scouts to purchase equipment to support group activities, Minard Community Trust to carry out significant improvements to the village hall; Mid Argyll Community Enterprises Ltd to cover costs associated with employing modern apprentices; Lochgilphead Soccer Centre assist with costs of equipment, training kit, coach training, and participation in football festivals; and Blarbuie Woodland Enterprises to upgrade woodland paths.

Rachel Searle-Mbullu, Head of Communities, Foundation Scotland said, “The Panel is keen to support those priorities identified in the local plans that each of the three communities developed in preparation for the Fund, and encourages groups delivering work addressing these issues to apply.”
