Campbeltown Town Hall plans in library for a fortnight

For the coming two weeks, from 15th to 26th January, the draft design plans for Campbeltown Town Hall will be on display in Campbeltown Library.

This is designed to give people more time to consider them and contribute their views.

Anyone who was unable to attend the community event held just before the Christmas Lights Switch On, with viewing and discussion on the plans will now have another opportunity to get involved.

This will be the last chance to have your say before the final design plans are put together for submission to the Big Lottery Fund in April by the South Kintyre Development Trust.

Deirdre Henderson, Project Animateur for the Campbeltown Town Hall project, says:  ‘There was a great buzz at the Christmas Lights Switch On event when local people got to see the draft plans for the first time.

‘Some people asked if the plans could be displayed again so that they could invite their friends and relatives to see the plans, too. We’ve now made this possible so we would encourage everyone to come along and view the plans, give their views, and help the project by letting us know if they might use the rooms in the future.’

The project will also use a Voxur video capture unit [photo above], made available by Argyll & Bute Council, to enable people to give their views through a short video survey.

Library staff will be on hand to help whenever possible,. with advice on using the Voxur unit. Deirdre will be there herself for the morning of the 15th January for any questions and a few more sessions will be added over the fortnight when the South Kintyre Development Trust will at the Library to answer any queries.

Tracy Grant, Town Hall Project Coordinator for SKDT, says: ‘If you want this project to happen we need your support to secure Big Lottery Funding.

‘Please show your support by coming along to the library and filling in the sign in sheet, share your photographs and memories of the Town Hall, take part in the video survey or complete the paper or online survey.
