Plans for a £27,500 soft play area that will transform part of Lochgilphead Community Centre have been unveiled.
The design, by soft play specialist Tiger Play, would see room six of the centre turned into a play room that would be suitable for children of all ages.
Lochgilphead Community Centre Association (LCCA) plans to apply to a number of organisation, including the Big Lottery Fund, to finance the project.

A plan drawn together by Craignish community regarding its future development aims and priorities has been agreed by Argyll and Bute councillors.
The Craignish Community Plan, which covers the Craignish peninsula, north of Lochgilphead, is the first document of its kind.
The plan has been developed by the local community in partnership with the council’s planning policy team.
Angus Gilmour, Argyll and Bute’s head of planning and regulatory services, said the community’s drive and commitment had resulted in a document which potentially could have a profound effect on future development in the local area.
“This is a wonderful example of how a community wishing to influence its own future direction can work in partnership with the council,” he added.
