Update For Tiree Community Shop

With financial support from the Big Lottery, the Trust has appointed Allanpark Consultants Ltd to help the Community Shop Steering Group prepare a feasibility study into the Community owning and operating a community shop.

The consultants – Alison Smith and Karen Anderson have already commenced their work and will be contacting some of the retail businesses during this next week. Alison and Karen have also arranged to visit Tiree for a few days next week during which time they will hold two community consultation events.

The first one is from6-8pm on the 21st November in An Talla and the other from 10am –1pm on Saturday 23rd November at the Rural Centre.

Alison, the lead consultant, says that these events will be designed to be drop-in, allowing you to pop in any time, and promises that they won’t take up too much of your time. Please put one of these dates in your diary. For those who can’t make either of these sessions, then they will also set up a Facebook page and Twitter account inviting people to contribute their views online.

Karen says that they hope that using these different approaches will mean that they can reach as many people as possible. Meanwhile if you have any queries or requests for further information please contact Jackie at the Trust on 220974 or email jackie@tireetrust.org.uk
