Work to upgrade the sewer network in Toward will be commencing soon, says Scottish Water.
Further to investigation work done in February, the company will be constructing an underground tank in private land on the shore.
Work is due to start week commencing March 6.
Before these works start Scottish Water is holding a series of information events for its customers living around the Holy Loch and Firth of Clyde about plans for a £5 million investment in the area.
The world will witness a powerful phenomenon as the annual World Day of Prayer sweeps across the Christian world on Friday, March 3. A tidal wave of prayer that follows the day as the sun travels westwards across the sky.
This year it is the turn of Dunoon Baptist Church to act as host congregation. Everyone is cordially invited to attend the service at 2.15pm to join in with the prayers and the singing and to listen to the address. People from most of our town’s denominations will be taking part in the service, which is an excellent example of churches working happily together.
Schools in Argyll and Bute are set to benefit from a fund designed to improve disadvantaged children’s’ education– to the tune of £1,304,400.
The cash, from the Scottish Government’s Pupil Equity Fund, will be divided among schools depending on the number of pupils between P1 to S3 who are eligible for free school meals. Awards are equivalent to £1,200 per pupil.
