Argyll and Bute Council is delighted to announce the successful projects that will receive funding from its Supporting Communities Fund.
The Council’s Policy Lead for Communities, Councillor Robin Currie: “We would like to thank everyone who submitted an application, and all those who took the time to vote - over 4,500 of you.
“This year we have piloted a new approach and encouraged the people of Argyll and Bute to decide what projects should receive funding. The process was part funded by the Scottish Government’s Community Choices programme and will help inform our approach to involving communities in making financial decisions in the future.
“This fund is all about our communities and this money will make a huge difference to community groups and organisations throughout the area.”
The successful applicants are as follows:
