Lo­vat Shinty Club plans new pav­il­ion

The Oban Times - - SPORT -

LO­VAT Shinty Club have em­barked on an am­bi­tious project to build a new sports pav­il­ion at their Bal­gate pitch.

The new build­ing will pro­vide male and female chang­ing rooms for the club’s youth and adult shinty teams and be used reg­u­larly by the com­mu­nity.

It will in­cor­po­rate treat­ment rooms de­signed to be used by phys­io­ther­a­pists and NHS staff as well as so­cial ar­eas for the lo­cal school and other con­sti­tuted groups who op­er­ate in the com­mu­nity.

With the lo­cal vil­lage hall over­sub­scribed, the de­mand for an ad­di­tional com­mu­nity fa­cil­ity is high.

The project ties in with Lo­vat’s devel­op­ment plan which aims to in­crease the num­ber of youth mem­bers at the club. With a ladies’ team now play­ing reg­u­larly, the new pav­il­ion will also re­solve is­sues aris­ing from the cur­rent lim­ited chang­ing fa­cil­i­ties.

Lo­vat have sup­port from sportscot­land and the Robert­son Trust and, to­gether with the club’s own funds and do­na­tions, they al­ready have a large con­tri­bu­tion to­wards the cost of the project. They are not quite there yet and are ap­peal­ing for do­na­tions for a project which means so much to the shinty club and the com­mu­nity as a whole.

The club have set up a club­house project crowd­fun­der. Do­na­tions have al­ready started to come in and pledges can be made at the fol­low­ing link http:// www.crowd­fun­der. co.uk/lov at-shin ty-club -new-pav­il­ion/
