Sanna Mission Hall

At a recent meeting of West Ardnamurchan Community Development Company interest was shown in exploring an informal Friends of Sanna Mission Hall group. If this were to happen, it may be that, eventually, the group would take responsibility for holding funds for the Hall. (Although the Hall belongs to the community the Kirk Session currently hold the funds with the approval of the General Trustees.) Eilidh Canning will raise this at the next meeting of the Grazings Committee. Maintenance should take place over the summer.

1 Restoration Update    

Dale Meegan gave a report on the progress made so far. Funding bodies will want to see the church building benefitting the wider community. A lot of information will be required eg business plans and costs. At present there is lack of clarity about how much the restoration will cost. The General Trustees of the Church of Scotland will need to approve any funding applications. Applications will also need to be approved by Ardnamurchan Kirk Session and Lochaber Presbytery. Permission will also be needed from Heritage Environment Scotland as the church is a listed building. Dale suggested a funding campaign within the community together with the Heritage and History Group. The Session agreed membership of Scotland Churches Group costing £50.00 per annum. It was also agreed that the front entrance be reinstated as part of the restoration. The Session also agreed that Dale may apply for funding. Dale thanked the Kirk Session and the Session thanked Dale and the Working Group for their work. Dale left the meeting.
