Arran has recorded its first positive coronavirus cases since April, it was confirmed as the Banner went to press.
Young people from Arran led a presentation to North Ayrshire Council’s cabinet last week on behalf of the Arran Locality Partnership. Working with Arran Youth Foundations (AYF) and Arran High School parent council, the aim is to provide ground-breaking projects that contribute to the wellbeing of all children and young people on Arran, specifically looking at improving mental health and wellbeing services.
Last week, the Arran Trust, the island’s visitor gifting scheme, eventually managed to have a socially distanced cheque presentation to Arran Theatre and Arts Trust (ATAT), who received £8,436 towards an Arran Arts Heritage Trail last year. This will support the main funding for the project, received by the trust through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
