We’re having an Open Day on Saturday 6th June at 1 pm here at the Atholl Centre. Why? To officially open our new accessible facilities completed this year ( to be opened by our local MSP and Deputy First Minister, John Swinney) and give you a chance to be nosey and take a look for yourselves. We’ll start with a buffet lunch, then a couple of speeches and a chance to take the tour.
With generous grants from the Enterprise Ready Fund, The Goodnews Scotland Health Fund, the Hugh Fraser Foundation and the Gannochy Trust, as well as with money raised by our supporters both here in the community and further afield, we’ve transformed a 4 bedroom block into an accessible self-catering chalet with 3 accessible en-suite bedrooms, a lounge and accessible kitchen too, and we’ve made our remaining ground floor bedrooms into accessible en-suites.
With further grants from the Creativity Fund and Keep Scotland Beautiful, and donated scaffolding boards from Flow Access Systems we’re now working on creating an accessible community garden too, which we hope will be well on by June. To celebrate that we’ve joined in with The Big Lunch, a national community get together thought up by the Eden Project, so, if you prefer, come for a garden lunch on Sunday at 1pm. We hope to be eating our own home grown salads!
So come along & see what we’ve done and join us in saying thank you to those who helped us achieve all this. Please phone us on 01796 473044 to say you’re coming so we have numbers for catering. Thanks. See you there!
