Darren Brown of Castlehill Primary School is officially streets ahead as he’s the winner of Argyll and Bute Council’s road naming competition. The new road, through the former Park Square site, will now be called Aqualibrium Avenue.

Darren, along with fellow pupils at Castlehill Primary and pupils at Dalintober Primary each submitted names for the new road. The Campbeltown CHORD board judged the competition looking at many original and thought provoking names before selecting Aqualibrium Avenue.

The new ACHA housing development addresses have also been confirmed. The main blocks will be named Park Terrace with other properties addressed on two existing streets - McCallum Street and Longrow.

 In addition pupils at Dalintober Primary took part in a “What does renewable energy mean for Campbeltown?” art competition. Winners of this were first place – Louise Dott; second place – Rachel Adie and third place Alison Armour.

The top ten pictures will be framed with the top three going on display in Aqualibrium. The other seven pictures will be displayed at Wind Towers Limited.

Chair of the Campbeltown CHORD board Councillor Rory Colville said, “I would like to congratulate all the children who took part in the competitions. Judging competitions is never easy but Aqualibrium Avenue seemed the perfect choice for the new road. Aqualibrium is at the heart of the new developments in Campbeltown and I am delighted that, for years to come, residents and visitors alike will travel into the town along Aqualibrium Avenue.”

David Steele, Head of Business Development at Wind Towers Limited said. “We are delighted to be able display the pictures at Machrihanish. We are hoping to arrange with the school for the artists to come and see the pictures and learn more about what we do at our Machrihanish facility”.
