Andrew Baxter Surgery

Our local councillor, Andrew Baxter, will be holding a surgery in Kilchoan Community Centre on Tuesday 4th March between 3.30 and 4.30pm.

Andrew has campaigned tirelessly on our behalf for many things, but his current efforts are directed towards the scandal of the Corran ferry fare increases.  When he spoke at the last meeting of West Ardnamurchan Community Council he was trying to get hold of the ferry's accounts from Highland Council, without any success.  If Council officers haven't maintained accounts that can be made public, how can they justify such steep fare increases?

Andrew's website is here.

Learning Centre Courses

From Pat Glenday:

The list of the Learning Centre's 2014 courses from February onwards is shown below.
  • If you have already booked onto any of the courses listed, don’t worry, I have your booking
  • Glass Mosaic and Trevor Potts’ Antarctic Talk in Kilchoan are not listed, because they are already full. Most of the other Kilchoan classes are also getting pretty full, so if you are interested in any of them, please get in touch soon.
  • There are some new classes and workshops listed that were not on my autumn list. In Kilchoan these are Pilates led by Rhona Gemmell, Cattle Husbandry with Paco the vet, and a Poetry Reading by Tessa Ransford. 
  • The date for the Singing Workshop has now been confirmed, and the tutor is Maeve MacKinnon: “Mackinnon is recognised as one of Scotland's leading young folk musicians. She was nominated in 2008 as "Gaelic Singer of the Year" at the Scots Trad Music Awards and was named "Up and Coming Artist of the Year" at the 2007 Scots Trad Awards. She was also a finalist in BBC Radio Scotland's "Young Traditional Musician of the Year" competition in 2005” (ref Wikipedia). The workshop will cover English and Scots song too, not just Gaelic, and all ages and abilities will be welcome. The fee for children will be reduced.
