DCE is looking at how it can help communities and business within the recovery period. Take a look at our draft plan.
Dunadd Community Enterprise and Community Council have been able to secure limited funding to support the community during the Covid 19 crisis.
Part of this fund is available to Dunadd residents, who are struggling at the present moment, please share this information and please encourage people to apply.
The fund is being distributed in £60 cash handouts to households and residents who are struggling at the present time, and is aimed to support families with food and essentials, electricity key cards etc, however other financial pressures can be applied for.
Please read the information sheet that also explains how we would treat applicants confidentiality.
Originally we were going to have a few different community meetings to explain our progress, show you the possibility, and gain your feedback. However in this time of isolation we have had to adapt and do this online.
By following the link you will find an explanation of our findings so far, and have a chance to feedback your thoughts.
There is a six minute video that takes you on a journey through the possible adapted building.
The community council is developing its response to the current situation and has coordinators in different areas. We are looking for volunteers who can deliver shopping, pick up prescriptions, chat over the phone, etc .
We are also trying to identify people who are self isolating and need help. As you will be aware it is difficult to be confident everyone has got the message in an isolated rural area, so we ask that you share this with neighbours, friends, etc. This way we hope to get a message to everyone.
we ask all people who are volunteering to take heed of this information from Argyll and Bute Council

Information on the forthcoming meeting to update the community on Dunadd Community Enterprise.
This will include an update on the viability study on The Kilmartin Church Building, project.
Documents for the meeting on 30th January 2020
The 3 villages of Kilmelford, Ardfern and Kilmartin have come together to look at [the viability of] a shared Community Transport project. The project is called the A816 but also included other settlements and villages within the immediate area.
This is intended to support anyone with transport issues to be able to access services in the towns that they might not be able to right now.
This could include sports and other extracurricular activities in Lochgilphead and Oban, and may even assist students and people looking for their first jobs.
How can you help?
We presently have a questionnaire to help shape and gauge the response to the project, you can help us by filling this out. A816 Project Form
We have changed the structure of this website, there is now a new projects item in the menu. That leads to an overall project page, then information on individual projects.
The Church Building Project has been update with a copy of the project plan that we will keep up to date so you know where we are at.
There is a new litter project that we will post more details as this moves forward.
