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.
