Look to the future

Some would argue it has been an eyesore that should have been knocked down long before now and replaced with a more modern building.

But it’s sad to see the old Inveraray Community Hall crumble and rot with neglect.

What makes the building’s current predicament all the more galling is that there was the chance, according to Inspire Inveraray, to make the building safe six years ago. This did not happen and all the signs are that the fabric of the community hall is now virtually beyond saving.

It hosted some grand events in years gone by and has a fair bit of history attached to it.

But nothing ever stays the same and we have to look to the future and get behind Inspire Inveraray to build a new community centre on this site.

It will benefit everyone, but only when individuals, clubs and groups in Inveraray get right behind it and make it a success.
