As has become customary, Glenfinart Walled Garden took a stall at the annual Dunoon Dazzle event again this year. There was marmalade, pickles, chutneys, home baking and knitting on sale together with a busy raffle. Just over £350 was raised so a big thank you to all the volunteers who contributed to this.

Once again Maryjane, Linda and their hard working team excelled themselves with eerie walks, amazing decorations and delicious chilli supper at the annual Ardentinny Bowling Club Halloween Party. There was a Horror Film Quiz with clever cryptic clues and a ‘Guess Who’s Buried in the Graveyard?’ quiz as well as ‘Guess how many Eyeballs in the Jar’.
Pumpkins lined the path to the clubhouse and there were laughing Ghouls, screeching Witches and flashing Skeletons to scare the unsuspecting guiser approaching the club house. The best costume was won by the very convincing caveman. There was music and dancing and a good time was had by all.

Chair of Ardentinny Renewables Trust, Dougie Menzies, provided the following update on the hydro schemes currently in progress: ‘The two hydro schemes being built up at Baron Turner are progressing well and the company (Hydrover) have completed all the pipework and built the turbine house. The final part is the connection to the grid and Scottish Hydro are awaiting the transformer to enable this to happen. Hopefully this will be in the next few weeks. The transformer is coming from Australia and was ordered in January.’
Dougie also informed that a new constitution has been drawn up to enable the Trust to be registered as a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO), and is ready to be submitted.
