· £3,569 to Kinlochlovin’ Community Enterprise for the purchase of sound equipment for community arts and sports projects;

· £150 for promotional material for the 2016 Lochaber Road Users Safety Campaigns 2016.

Chair of the Lochaber Area Committee, Councillor Thomas MacLennan said: “Our Ward Discretionary Fund is for helping local groups and organisations run projects that bring benefits to their local area. All five of these applications were very worthy of our support so I am delighted we have been able to allocate funding to them. We look forward to seeing all these exciting plans for the coming year take off.”
