INSPIRE INVERARAY NEWSLETTER - MAY
Welcome to the Inspire Inveraray Newsletter
It has been a busy and exciting time over the last few months. Inspire Inveraray have been awarded grants from the Scottish Land Fund, Inspiring Scotland and the UK Government for the Levelling Up Bid.
The Scottish Land Fund awarded £127,374 which can be used for 95% of the purchase cost, health and safety repairs and appointing a pier development administrator for two years.
Inspiring Scotland awarded £31,500 and the Levelling Up Awarded £45,000 which will allow the restoration and opening of the stone pier.
Inspire Inveraray have appointed a solicitor who is managing the sale, which will hopefully be complete within a few weeks.
We had a Ministerial visit from MSP John Lamont on the 18th of May to discuss the ‘Levelling Up Fund’.
We are grateful to all of those that have donated, volunteered, helped and awarded grants to enable the community ownership of the pier.
Warm Spaces continues to be a great success. This has recently been hosted by Sheena at Chalmers Court, the Loch Fyne Hotel and the Inveraray Inn. We would like to take the opportunity to all who have contributed and volunteered since the start of Warm Spaces.
The Fyne Community Shed
Inspire Inveraray have been awarded £8500 from TSI for the purchase of a shed, the co-op have donated £150 and £500 from Taziker Ind Ltd.
An application has been submitted to the Argyll and Bute Council for £2500 for a consultation to be held on the community hall. Inspire Inveraray aim for this to be a conclusive consultation, offering options to the community of re-development of
the hall, a new hall at a different location or any other ideas the community has.
Ruth Jackson at the primary school is keen to start a community garden and has received funding for resources. Aly has met with Ruth offering help, and hopefully a work date will be arranged to build and fill the beds.
