At any given time we can have several initiatives underway; here you can follow progress and find out the latest news.
Thanks to a grant of £8,500 from Awards for All, we have detailed plans for the football pitch at Iochdar Hall. We also have the lease sorted out. This is all very exciting, and has allowed us to make a start. The plans for a 4G pitch and changing facility have now got planning permission. Please check here for the pitch layout and here for the parking layout and here for the changing rooms floor plan
We are also continuing to support the campaign for improved road safety around the school, along with the Parent Council at Iochdar School. The road leading up to the school is narrow and twisty, and one side is overgrown. We have written to the council asking for better traffic calming measures along the road, a speed limit and a footpath.They have already introduced a reduced speed limit, added more signage and a 'SLOW' warning on the road. They have confirmed that it is not going to be easy to add a footpath alongside the road, due to the irregular construction techniques for the original road.
We have got six benches already constructed, and we are planning to site these around Iochdar, affixed to some concrete plinths. In addition we have a team of volunteers coming to Uist to undertake some volunteering projects alongside local community groups. Please contact us if you have a project that you could do with some help with.

- Public benches at Ardivachair and Rubha Doigeag
