The Open Gardens event raised £1,641 towards the
Village Hall Development Fund.
Thanks to all who helped, and to the weather!


In the Gaelic language the word clachan means a hamlet or village. Our clachan
is in Kintyre, at the mouth of West Loch Tarbert on the west coast of Scotland,
where it serves as the gateway to the history and spectacular scenery of the
Southern Hebridean Isles. We have a shop and filling station, a part-time post
office, a kirk and a primary school. We also have a village hall, which is at the
centre of community life, and is used for a variety of functions and meetings,
including the Bowls Club, Smallholders’ Gathering, Tai Chi, the annual Art Show,
ceilidhs, Harvest Supper, Weddings and Wakes, the annual pantomime…..and
many others. It is a vital part of our village life.
The Hall was built in 1956 and has served the village well, but is now in a poor
state and desperately in need of replacement. Professionals have told us that a
new building will cost in the region of £600,000. We have already raised a
substantial sum by our own efforts and generous local support, and this is
steadily increasing. Soon we shall be able to approach organisations who provide
grants to assist community projects such as this. All help, whether by large or
small donations, would be appreciated and will take us nearer to our goal.
