Community Partnership – Community Grants and Cowal Area Network 2nd December 2015

There was plenty of community catching up at the recent Cowal Area Network held in the Creggans Inn, Strachur.

With a great turnout from communities stretching from Arrochar, Lochgoilhead, Strachur, Ardentinny, to Benmore and Kilmun, the evening was a chance for a blether and meet with the Cowal’s new community officer PC Alison Kane, Police Scotland, and Colin Fulcher, Strategic Co-ordinator from Leader (Argyll & Bute). Guests received welcome news of the National Park Authority’s new Community Grant Scheme which is offering grants up to £500 and £4,000. The grants which are available will be for two main purposes;

·         Developing the capacity and strength of your organisation and;

·         Key projects from new Community Actions Plans that help deliver National Park Objectives.

Communities are encouraged to respond quickly as the deadline date for submissions is the 5 January 2016. Please see attached guidelines or contact Hannah Robinson, Sustainable Development Adviser T: 01389 722627 (Mon-Thu) to find out more.
