I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who entered the competitions I ran for the Nancy Glen campaign.

I have been working in Tarbert for a while now and have a lovely client base there, I am so pleased to have been able to help and give something back.

I am sure I speak for a lot of people when I say this awful tragedy has touched many people and I can only give my heart felt condolences to the families affected.

I am pleased to say I have managed to raise £520 and I will be donating it to the just giving page later today.

Again thank you to everyone who entered and my apologies to the people who didn’t get a number.

I will hopefully be doing a live video on here later today for the winners of the competitions so please keep an eye out.

Good luck

Tarbert Village Hall – Going Digital

Tarbert Village Hall would like to modernise the way in which users can access the hall, making it more accessible through the development of a dedicated mobile responsive website with integrated online booking system. This way users can easily see when the hall is available to book and book directly. The system would also allow people to see what is happening in the hall if it is an open event that is listed, therefore also acting as advertising platform for community events.

Supporting Communities Fund

Argyll and Bute Council is changing how it distributes its grants to local community groups and third sector organisations, giving local communities more of a direct say in how the funding is allocated.

The fund is open to community groups including community councils and parent councils.

Projects can receive up to a maximum of £2,500.

A website has been created specifically for the fund: www.abpb.co.uk

Groups are encouraged to post their ideas for projects between now and 22 December 2017, to let their communities know what they would do with the money and how it would benefit the area. The ideas website allows people to see the ideas being proposed, ask questions to find out more, offer suggestions to help shape the ideas and provide feedback to groups before they submit a funding application.

This year, applications will be decided by participatory budgeting. This means that officers will score applications and recommend a list to councillors who will agree which projects will go forward to a public vote. Members of the public will have the final say on which projects receive funding through a vote in April 2018.

If you would like to apply to the fund, visit www.abpb.co.uk to post your idea.

The fund is split between the four Area Committee areas – Bute and Cowal, Helensburgh and Lomond, Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Islands, and Oban, Lorn and the Isles.

A step by step guide to posting an idea on the site is can be found at www.abpb.co.uk and the Council’s Community Development Officers will be able to help anyone who needs support to post an idea or use the site. The Community Development Team can be contacted by email communitydevelopment@argyll-bute.gov.uk or by calling 01369 708669.
