THE com­mu­nity coun­cil re­ceived a re­port from Car­raig Gheal Wind Farm Com­mu­nity Ben­e­fit Fund and stressed the im­por­tance and suc­cess of this fund to the wider com­mu­nity.

Grant guide­lines were dis­cussed and agreed and will now be is­sued to any ap­pli­cant with the ap­pli­ca­tion form.

It was noted that the com­mu­nity coun­cil had not en­dorsed a mi­cro grant ap­pli­ca­tion for wildlife feed­ing costs in a pri­vate gar­den in Cladich.

Grants were agreed for Dal­mally Pri­mary School, which re­ceives £ 500, and, af­ter a bal­lot, an award was agreed for the Loch Awe­side Red Squir­rel Group – £250 from An Suidhe mi­cro grant and £150 from the com­mu­nity.

Po­lice ap­peal

PC DAR­REN Miller par­tic­u­larly asked that all res­i­dents re­port any­thing un­usual by phon­ing 101.

He said that peo­ple were nat­u­rally re­luc­tant to trou­ble the pub­lic ser­vices, but it is in­creas­ingly im­por­tant to let the po­lice de­cide pri­or­i­ties, other­wise in­ci­dents are not recorded and a false value of ru­ral crime and con­cerns is cre­ated.

The com­mu­nity coun­cil has agreed to carry any rea­son­able costs of Ru­ral Watch signs.
