The Isle of Luing Community Trust Atlantic Islands Centre has won the prestigious Argyll & Bute Social Enterprise of the Year Award at a packed awards ceremony in the Argyllshire Gathering Hall in Oban in September 2016. Argyll & Bute Council Provost Len Scoullar presented the award in recognition of the Trust's work to create a community hub, visitor centre, café restaurant and new jobs on Luing, and for its commitment towards staff and volunteers. The event was attended by Michael Russell MSP, Councillors Roddy McCuish, Elaine Robertson, Julie McKenzie and Kieron Green and Argyll & Bute Council Chief Executive Clelland Sneddon.

Argyll & Bute Third Sector Interface Chief Executive Glenn Heritage, who organised the event, said “ It is important that people like them - who give up much of their own precious time to help others - are recognised for the huge contribution they make. They don’t do it for the recognition but our communities are so much richer for their efforts. We hugely value them.”

We would like to thank all staff, volunteers and Centre users who helped make this award possible.

The Atlantic Islands Centre provides a community hub for the people of Luing and an exciting heritage, arts and café/restaurant visitor attraction.
