Morvern Games and Gala Week
Morvern Games & Gala Week Committee (MGGW) has received funding from The Scottish Land Fund to take over ownership of 47-acre Knock Park from Ardtornish Estate. MGGW will continue to run the annual Highland games and regular shinty matches as well as providing recreational space for the community.
Ownership will provide the opportunity to establish a permanent facility, set up storage facilities and workshops along with a community woodland, motorhome and camp site, new sports and recreation clubhouse.
Community ownership (rather than rental) will provide the opportunity to establish a permanent facility, which will open up opportunities for other uses throughout the year and consequently lead to the installation of other amenities of value to future generations or Morvern residents.
The business vision is to create several facilities over the next five years which will ultimately generate an income throughout the year, which is used to subsidise non-income generating community facilities.
Further to a decision by SLF we will be working closely with Morvern Community Woodlands on a plan for a small area of woodland; employing a Project Support Officer; develop plans for Motorhome & Storage/Workshop site; construct ?clubhouse? facilities; enhance sports facilities.
