Tenant Chosen For Crossapol Shop

CDP update July 2015

 

We are delighted to announce that Elaine Hayes has been chosen as the tenant for what will be the new community building in Crossapol, when the sale concludes later this month for the former I & F MacLeod store.

 

Elaine plans to open her new shop, called Bùth a’ Bhaile (Village Shop), at the end of the summer and will be stocking a range of grocery, fresh and frozen items. She has been managing Co-operative food stores in Glasgow for the last eight years but sees this as an ideal opportunity to settle back home on Tiree.

 

TCDT have been awarded £141,000 from the Scottish Land Fund to buy the building and will rent it to a private business but will have no involvement in the running of the business. The rent received will be reinvested in community projects.
