ballotbox_415x275A YES vote will send a clear signal that the community is willing to embrace change and shape its own future. We would urge you to get your ballot card in ASAP. We have until 11th February, however the sooner you vote the better we can monitor the turnout and encourage participation in the vote.
If you have already voted then please urge your neighbours to do the same. We need a good turnout to get this project going.

REMEMBER

  • You can return your ballot card at no cost by simply popping it into the envelope provided along with the PRIZE DRAW entry slip and posting it back to us.
  • Or take the envelope to any of the island Post Offices and drop your vote into the Ballot Box

We need the chance to take our plans to the Scottish Government and potential funders.

YOU CAN GIVE US THIS CHANCE.
