Marquee near Iona Village Hall
The Scottish Land Fund provided the funds to purchase the additional area of land needed for the construction of our new Iona Village Hall, which is due to start in June/July. This will be transformative for the island but does mean that all village hall activities are displaced for the duration of the build.
We have negotiated with a local supplier to borrow a small marquee, and a location for it to be erected for two weeks in August, straddling both Ross of Mull & Iona Gala Fortnight and Community Land Week. August is by far the busiest month of our summer season, and the village hall usually plays a major part in the calendar of local events for islanders, visitors and seasonal staff.
We plan to have a range of events – organised by different local groups – to celebrate both the local Gala Fortnight and Community Land Week, including a community celebration of the land acquisition.
