Argyll and Bute Council has today agreed to gift a strip of council-owned land at Innellan Village Hall to the charity which manages the hall.

The village hall is a focal point in Innellan, playing host to various groups like the Public Hall Archive Project, community council meetings, SWRI, visiting theatre groups, art club, yoga groups, badminton club and carpet bowls.

Transferring ownership to the trustees of the hall is intended to support the charity in maintaining this resource for the community, and by giving additional security when seeking funding or investment.

Councillor Bobby Good, Chair of Bute and Cowal Area Committee, said: “One of the council’s key priorities is to develop safer, stronger communities and the aims of the Innellan Public Hall Trustees are very much in line with this. We want to help communities realise their ambitions.

“Most importantly, we want to see the hall remain a focus of community life for many years to come.”
