Directors – We are looking for new committee members based in Sunart! We even have spaces for folk who actually don’t live here permanently but would like to do their bit – please get in touch!. The committee meets every 6 weeks to work on community initiatives and help manage our local properties.

Awarding Grants – can you spare FIVE HOURS PER YEAR? Yes  – that is all the commitment we are asking for to help sit on the Sunart Community Benefit Fund Panel. The community company does all the admin so all you need to do is read the meeting papers and come along twice a year to a meeting to help decide how much money to give to community groups from the cash donated by the Sunart Community Hydro. Email to find out more.

Sunart Show

Our usual burger stall will be at the Sunart Show on the 12th August, make sure you stop by and support Sunart Community Company by purchasing a delicious bite to eat.
