Craignish Community Company
Builds the Future

The Community Company was set up two years ago to aid local people in getting their voices heard. The Company, led by its four directors, is also a charity which means they are able to receive grants. Diane Steele, secretary of the Community Company agreed to come to the school to be interviewed. Diane volunteered to be secretary. This means she is not paid but she still enjoys her job. Diane deals with mail and takes notes at meetings held by the Community Company.
The Community Company had collected money so they could do something for the village in order to make it a better place. They came up with some things that would help the community and earn money for it . We found out the results and here they are.

1. Small business units. To provide rented workshop spaces for business in Craignish.

2. Housing.

3. Playing Field.

4. Wind Power.

5. Community Recycling.

Wow! What a night! I had just come from a party but what a nice mansion by the look of it it had about 20 windows, a huge black door and the most amazing turrets. The removal van was sitting with the doors open and John was waving his finger in a very angry fashion.

John was my brother, a bit intense and always took life very seriously, unless John saw something he didn't agree with it so religion was out.

Whoooooosh! Suddenly a big black grand piano came hurtling towards me in my black lamborghini. I jumped out like a frog near a bomb bannnnnnnng
§§§§±±±±§§±§§@122213£$£%%%%% that was$4, 500,000

As i went to buy my new car I wondered: peugeot, bugatti, ferrari?
I think ferrari as it is fast nice and smooth. I think I will get it that will be £20,000 what i only have $$$$!@£$%forget it il get the whole lot.

When I came up the drive I heard a scream I ran at full pelt and smashed down the door I saw John petrified he told me what happened .......... ............. ..... ... ... haha good joke
ok lets ask the locals see what they saw .

The next Tuesday night when we were eating a pot appeared it started pouring blood out.
Blood, that was what my brother said. Bang! I got shot.

Ardfern Gets Active!!


The obesity agenda is easily conquered on the Craignish Peninsula.

During this academic session the pupils at Craignish Primary have identified the need to eat healthy breakfast, snacks and lunches. It is obviously an issue that required personal thought but the national problem of obesity is not down simply to diet it also requires exercise.

The Craignsh peninsula and surrounding area offers a lot of sports to cater for a variety of needs and interests.

Ardfern Riding Centre

At Ardfern riding, most of the horses are bred by the owners. All the horses are Appaloosas. There are up to 11 horses, which get used for trekking and things. The horses are different ages from 4-20.

There are four horses which are owned by very good friends of the bosses who keep there horses there.

At the moment there are two helpers who keep the yard clean. Styles are English and western.


In the new village Hall, in the winter, adults of the community arranged to have badminton at the Village Hall. I went to do the sessions. Children aged from 9-18 came at 6:30. Then everyone took turns to play.


There are 2 local places where children go swimming. Mid Argyll and Atlantis are the 2 local places They do roughly the same things for lessons.
