Glenfinart Walled Garden and revival of Ardentinny Community Trust

Given the overwhelming village support for the community purchase of Glenfinart Walled Garden, the Community Council, in conjunction with the Forestry Commission, instructed the District Valuer to value the property. A Valuation of £10.000 was received on the 29th June, 2010.

As the Community Council is not empowered to raise funds, it has been necessary to revive Ardentinny Community Trust in order to access grant funding for the purchase, fund-raising, renovation and future management of this community project. Previous membership has now lapsed but it is hoped that residents might consider becoming members and helping the community take this exciting project forward. The revived Trust is holding an EGM at 2.30pm on Sunday 25th July at Glenfinart Hall, Ardentinny to which all are welcome.

Further information on the Community Survey results are available here.

A fascinating historical map from 1882 showing the walled garden can be viewed here.

    May we reiterate that we will publish minutes of all meetings as soon as they are received from the relevant committees. We have now received minutes from both Ardentinny Community Council and Ardentinny Community Trust and these have now been published.

    I understand that an application to buy has already been submitted, and a 28 day period of open consultation on the FCS website is about to commence in which anyone can view the application and ask questions. In order to make a fair appraisal I think the minutes of the EGM several weeks ago should be available to view at the earliest date, or indeed, an opportunity to hear the audio recording I am told was made.

    As with all minutes relevant to Ardentinny, they will be published on the website when ardentinny.org receives them
