Projects

The Community Development Trust has acquired funding for and overseen several major projects.

Community Cafe

In 2005, the Trust accessed funding to purchase the local Pit Stop Diner, as a first  step towards the creation of a Community Campus, providing local employment and services for the community.

Community Hall

In 2009, the Trust appointed a Campus Manager to manage and guide the building of the Three Villages Hall and help it to achieve the objective of becoming a self-sustainable community asset.

In 2010, the Three Villages Hall was built adjacent to the Pit Stop Diner on the site of the previous (award winning!) public toilets, on land purchased from Argyll and Bute Council. The £1.15million project was completed on time and on budget, and was formally opened by HRH Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay and HRH the Duchess of Rothesay in June 2010.

Community Heritage

The Trust was awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Argyll and the Islands LEADER for an exciting community-led heritage project, 'The Hidden Heritage of a Landscape: Vengeful Vikings to Reckless Rustlers'.
