Glen Orchy and Innishail
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.
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.
