The following press release has been issued by North Ayrshire Council on 28th March 2017
The "Finding Your Feet" charity host an annual fundraising event each year in the grounds of Garrison House. This year during the event on 11th June 2017, both CEO Michael Bertram and board director Bob Campbell will be performing a FireWalk.
Twenty years since a group of concerned citizens of Millport decided that they were not going to sit idly by and let Garrison House fall into disrepair we salute their efforts to save this magnificent building for future generations.
Garrison House was rebuilt after a devastating fire in 2001, but the due to funding challenges CCDC could not complete all the improvement in the grounds to create a formal landscaped appearance. Cumbrae Community Development Company (CCDC) would like to formally thank the Kelburn Wind Farm for the funds to commence the ‘clean-up’ project at Garrison House.
CCDC has some thrilling news to share regarding the 2016 sailing season. We were approached earlier this year by North Ayrshire Council to partner in a project with the Isle of Arran. The project scope was to improve and where possible, extend the number and use of moorings on the two islands.
