Historic Kilmun holds AGM with guest speaker

Historic Kilmun will be holding its Annual General Meeting on Tuesday 4th October from 7pm and will include a guest speaker presentation from architect Michael Davidson on proposed improvements and adaptions to the historic venue.

Michael explained: “We will be holding a community conversation about the improvement and adaptation of the building to meet the needs of its users and look forward to hearing the views of those who will be using the building on how it can best be adapted in order to
serve the wider community.”

Dinah McDonald of Historic Kilmun commented: “We are delighted to welcome back Michael Davidson, our main contact at Icosis, the firm architects who designed the restoration of the
church and Argyll Mausoleum in 2012.

“The building is already being used by many and varied groups of people. We were delighted to welcome both the Lamont and the Campbell clans during their visits to Cowal in July and we host a number of varied music events as well as running a gift shop and second
hand book stall.

“What we can achieve and who we can welcome to the building is limited by several factors, not least that we have only one accessible toilet. How can we best adapt the interior of
this amazing building whilst holding fast to its wonderful sense of serenity and peace.

“All are welcome to join in with the conversation and refreshments will be available,” added Dinah.

Historic Kilmun is also playing host to the JKL Duo on Sunday 2nd October from 7.30pm. Tickets for this exceptional flute and guitar combo are priced at £10 and available on the door and from Bookpoint in Dunoon. On Saturday 8th October from 2.30pm Philip Norris returns with his half hour water organ recital. Refreshments will be available and donations welcomed.
