Cultybraggan Camp 21 Bunkhouse - Share Offer Launches Tonight!
Cultybraggan Camp is the last remaining WWII high security POW camp in the U.K (Camp 21). It is a unique historic environment which has been recognised by Historic Scotland as having international significance. Comrie Development Trust (CDT) is now offering Community Shares, giving individuals the opportunity to invest in sustaining part of Cultybraggan as the best preserved P.O.W camp in Scotland.
The community of Comrie acquired Cultybraggan Camp in 2007, from the army, to ensure that it survived intact. Now they have secured funding from Historic Scotland, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Scottish & Southern Energy to refurbish a key group of vacant listed buildings within the camp. This share offer will provide the final piece of the funding package, and demonstrate widespread support for this unique endeavour, which will give new life to these buildings as bunkhouse and self-catering accommodation.
The share offer target is £35,000 and shares are available from £25.
A Community Shares Launch night will be held in the White Church, Comrie on the evening of the 29th September. In attendance will be Lesley Riddoch as guest speaker along with the Community Shares Scotland team who will be available to answer anything about how community shares work.
Shares are available to purchase on www.microgenius.org.uk.
