South Kintyre Development Trust (SKDT) is celebrating after purchasing Campbeltown’s former Red Cross Hall.

The charity, which bought Campbeltown Town Hall in 2014, has added the Kirk Street building to its growing portfolio with the support of the Scottish Land Fund.

SKDT manager Zena Coffield said: ‘We have been trying to source a building for some time which can be developed as a central volunteer base and bring additional rental income to be reinvested in the community.

‘The closure of community halls across the country has had a serious impact on local area groups and services and we hope this space will bridge the gap and encourage a collaborative approach across the third sector and other services to maximise social impact.’

Anyone interested in renting the hall should email info@skdt.org or telephone 01586 552870.
