Lottery Award to Glen Estate Tenants Association

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to let you know that the Tenants’ Association has received
£10,000 from Awards for All Lottery Fund to carry out a year long
learning programme “Learning and Laughter@Glen Estate” aimed at older
people in the community.

The programme will include afternoon concerts and talks on Arran life,
a language programme Lingo Flamingo to combat dementia, T’ai Chi and
gardening classes to enhance the lovely new landscaping works at Glen

If you need any further information, please email me. I hope you will
be able to put some news about this in your next issue.

Best wishes,



From Alexandra Glencross

Energy opinion on Arran

To whom it may concern,

I am an Engineering student at the University of Glasgow and we are
currently undergoing a course in which we design a hypothetical plan
to make Arran’s energy source self sustainable. We know that the
community on Arran play a large role in the changes to the island, and
that previous schemes have been proposed. I was wondering if there
were any previous articles written on the purposed energy schemes and
specifically on the public opinion to these energy schemes?

Thank you for your time and I would appreciate any help you can offer.

Alexandra Glencross
