The Aberfeldy Sports Club (TASC) have received two substantial funding offers to help build and operate the multi-sports clubhouse and community wellbeing hub, the grants from the Griffin & Calliachar Community Fund and the Gannochy Trust total £500,00.
The plans for their new building will be presented at an event in the current Aberfeldy Golf Building on Sunday 27th of November 2022 after submitting the building to the Perth and Kinross Council Planning Department. The trustees of the sports club will be at the event to answer any questions the public may have.
Peter Howell, TASC’s independent Chairman said: “We are most grateful for this generous support to our community project. The size of the offers and stature of these bodies should give confidence to other potential funders.”
The new building will be erected on the footprint of the existing golf clubhouse which will be demolished, to make way for the new modern community clubhouse, which will house both the Golf and Rugby club among other activities.
The clubhouse which will include changing rooms, showers, toilets, a bar and restraint, a private meeting room and the scope to host lifestyle and wellbeing activities such as yoga, will be open to all those involved in sporting and physical activities as well as those who just want to enjoy a drink and conversation after a riverside walk or while walking the River Tay Way.
Alongside the work to construct the clubhouse and community wellbeing hub TASC trustees have been liaising with the Aberfeldy Golf Club, Feldyroo and the Upper Tay Paths Group on plans to create an ‘all ability’ pathway alongside the river.
