Families who live in villages in rural Argyll and Bute do not always find it easy to access the whole variety of extracurricular activities on offer in the population centres.
This survey was commissioned by the Mid Argyll, Kintyre and the Islands Community Planning Group, following a Place Standards survey which showed that one of the villages on the A816 had a surprising number of responses to say that young people were disadvantaged in accessing extracurricular activities. “Investigate if Community Transport provides for children/families”
We have been asked by Argyll & Bute Council to draw up the above plan to offer assistance to the emergency services in the event of a serious incident taking place in our community. It also needs to provide for a rapid response to an emergency where the uniformed services cannot get through.
Crucial to the plan will be a list of volunteers, with contact details, who are willing to help in an emergency. This would include anyone with a first aid qualification or medical background; chain saw certificate; 4 x 4 vehicle; knowledge of vulnerable residents or indeed any other skill / aptitude that would be important.
If you would like to be involved please contact the person on the list below who lives nearest to you, by Friday 23rd October 2015:
Sue MacLean, 10 Slockavullin (Tel: 510297)
Violet Brown, Innishail, Ford (Tel: 810232)
Colin Ferguson, Leckuary (Tel: 605253)
Jim Malcolm, Courtyard Cottage, Kilmartin (Tel: 510540)
The Community Asset Register (CAR) is a database of community volunteers willing to protect and support their communities in an emergency. The community volunteers work alongside the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and other emergency responders, to bring incidents to a successful conclusion.
