Glenfinnan Community Council held its June monthly meeting recently, alongside its AGM.

Cat Hunter gave the annual chairperson’s report and she began by welcoming everyone to the new Jetty Hut, which she said was a ‘fantastic’ addition to the community.

Community councillor Hunter thanked all the members for their hard work
and the wider community for all their help and the time that they had given to bring the Jetty Hut community venue into existence.

She then went on to give a fond farewell to retiring Highland Council elected members Allan Henderson and Denis Rixson, and warmly welcomed the three new councillors for the Caol and Mallaig ward –  Andrew Baldrey, Liz Saggers and John Grafton.

Community councillor Hunter then outlined the extensive list of projects the organisation had been involved with over the past 12 months.

These included:
• Upgrade of the shore path
• Ongoing communication with the National Trust for Scotland regarding its
future plans.
• The war memorial – a specialised clean and inspection of the tree roots and their impact on the statue. A member of the community has offered to clean and restore the gate and posts. An information board is being designed. Thanks to Hege Hernes and
David Grieve.
• The purchase of police cones to replace broken cones and to distribute around the village to discourage antisocial parking.
• An autumn village tidy and skip hire.

• Resurrection of the fireworks display for 2022
• Applying pressure on Forestry Land Scotland to reopen the Callop bridge and boardwalk.
• Distributed 30 bags of food from the Fareshare project.
• 40mph speed limit through the village.
• A tree planting to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
• Awaiting a new pedestrian crossing at the NTS centre
