Have your say

Na h-Eileanan an Iar SNP MSP, Alasdair Allan, has welcomed the success of Grimsay Community Association in being awarded £139,460 from the Scottish Land Fund.

The funding will be used to buy the former Grimsay Free Church building and grounds to allow the building to be brought into community ownership and allow it to be developed for the community.

Alasdair Allan commented: “This very welcome contribution from the Scottish Government’s Land Fund means, I hope, that this building can be secured for the community’s use. It’s good to see plans for so many new facilities on the island of Grimsay and I wish the people on the island every success with this venture in future.”
