Community Projects

  • The Pier

    Pier Progress Positive

    “NEGLECTED PEARL OF A GREAT TOWN”

    This major project, for the town, is the purchase and re-development of Inveraray Pier to benefit the community and the local economy by Inspire Inveraray, with the partnership of Inveraray Community Council.

    The pier fund now stands at £31,793. Aly Stewart has sourced funding covering the structural survey of the pier. A positive value of £55,000 has been acquired. Aly has recently applied to the Scottish Land fund for a grant amounting to 95% of the valuation figure plus health and safety costs amounting to over £100.000. Depending on awards successfully being attained, we anticipate being in a position to hopefully purchase the pier in the spring of 2023. An award of £30,000 has been received in respect of ongoing repair and maintenance costs after purchase.

  • Fyne Community Shed

    Fyne Community shed has raised a fair amount of interest. Linda Divers has sourced space from Donald MacDonald land at the factory. Assessments are being made as to the type of property which may be housed on the site. The treasurer has applied for a £10k funding towards the purchase and set up of a unit.

  • National Warm Spaces

    National Warm Spaces has been a great success. Sincere thanks to Kris Clark and his team for their time and effort at The George Hotel and for the provision of food, drink, entertainment and for the warm, welcoming space. Thank you to Ridge Clean Energy for their contribution.
    After a wonderful Christmas break, we welcomed back our Warm Spaces lunch today (Monday 9th January) and what a turn out it was and a lovely way to start 2023. It was lovely to see new and familiar faces in this community and we hope that you all enjoyed your lunch.
    Join us again next week, call us on 01499 302111 as spots fill up quickly. Don’t forget we can also pick you up and drop you off afterwards if required.
  • Community Hall

    Having rightly been focussed on the pier, it may be time to broach the Community Hall subject again despite these commitments and time. There is certainly a need for a community space in Inveraray.
