Substantial progress has been made over the past months on the funding applications for the Lowther Hill clubhouse. We are pleased to announce that we have already been awarded £39,890, and a final decision on the remaining £49,066 is expected to reach us by the end of August. We cannot emphasise enough how much time and work has been invested over the past years on the design, planning, liaising with stakeholders, and the different strands of the funding process. We are really looking forward to a positive outcome and start focusing our energy on other existing and new projects. Read more ...
The tender value is estimated at around £93,000 and it is expected that the building works would be primarily executed before the end of 2017. This is a great opportunity for a local builder, with appropriate expertise, to take on a project that will serve the community for many years to come.
We look forward to choosing the preferred contractor in due course. The tender period closes on Thursday 13th July 2017.
Funding applications were submitted to funders in October 2016. We hope 2017 will be the year when snowsports enthusiasts in the South of Scotland start enjoying the comfort of a ski lodge on Lowther Hill. Read more ...
