South Kintyre Sports Council Update  Share

Member Clubs are reminded that their 2010/11 membership of South Kintyre Sports Council is now due and affiliation forms can be downloaded at the newly launched Sports Council website www.southkintyresportscouncil.com (click here to download 2010/11 affiliation form)

Membership entitles clubs to help and support of their club, a webpage listing on the above website, funding opportunities as well as access to the Sports Council mini bus at subsidised cost. 

The mini bus is now entering itís third year since the Sports Council took delivery of the mini bus in March 2008.  Since then the bus has transported local sports teams all over Scotland on a weekly basis.  Continued support from the mini bus sponsors; Argyll Buildbase, McKinven & Colville, The Tasting Room (Springbank), Livingstone & McEachran and  McFadyens Contractors is ensuring the business model, which allows subsidised travel and the ability to replace the mini bus after 5 years, is working well.  The Sports Council wish to thank these local businesses for their continued support.

As well as giving financial support to both the MOKRUN Kids Run and Kintyre Canoe Club recently (£300 each club) the committee are organising the MOKRUN Ceilidh in conjucntion with the MOKRUN Committee which offers vital support to the local race while adding valuable funds to the Sports Councilís own accounts

Later in the year on October 2nd the Sports Council will be hosting their first ever awards ceremony and details of this event will appear here and in the local press soon.

In the meantime the campaign for an All Weather Pitch in Campbeltown continues with Argyll & Bute Council confirming early this month that a Stage 1 Application for funding has been made to Sportscotland for the provision of the pitch on Kinloch Green following the Councilís options appraisal in late March.  This comprehensive application was completed in conjunction with consultants PMR Leisure who are undertaking the Councilís Pitch and Facilities review and news back from the application is expected at the start of May.

The Sports Council are also delighted with the directive that has been issued by Argyll & Bute Council on pitch hire prices following the 90% increases with effect from 1st April 2010.  Click here to read more.

The next meeting of the Sports Council is this Monday (26th April) at 7pm in the Conference Room at the Aqualibrium.  Member clubs are welcome to come along as are members of the public.
