Community Survey Results Show Overwhelming Support
We distributed 590 questionnaires to households in Lochcarron, Kishorn, Sheildaig and Applecross. So far we have had 309 forms returned (52%). More than 95% were in favour of the proposal to build a leisure centre on the site that we have identified.
Initial analysis suggests that what our community ranks most highly is a Multi-Purpose Sports Hall, including a Cafe and a Fitness Suite. We have noted that there is a clear wish for the development to include a swimming pool – more than 25% of respondents mentioned this. In the past we have been advised that this would be unaffordable – but given the strength of the response we will take a close look at this to see whether or not it may be feasible. It is paramount that, as a charitable company, we can operate without making a loss.

Plans for new fundraising:
Over the last few months we have needed to pay out over a thousand pounds on planning fees. We are now at the stage where our funds are running low. Watch out for local events which we will run to help boost our working funds. More on this month!
