DUNOON COMMUN ITY COUNCIL and STRUAN LODGE DEVELOPMENT GROUP have posted notice to advise of two Public sessions to be held Wednesday 22nd November 2017 in Dunoon Grammar School between 6pm and 9pm and Thursday 23RD November 2017 in St Muns Church Hall between 2pm and 4.30pm

These meetings will be in the form of DROP IN Sessions to provide an update on the progress of discussions with ARGYLL & BUTE HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE PARTNERSHIP on the future for STRUAN LODGE and to obtain observations

struan lodge

In May 2017 the Integration Joint board of Argyll & Bute Health and Social Care Partnership agreed that time should be given for discussion to take place with the Struan Lodge Development Group to consider the points set out in that body’s Strategy  document which presented a case for continuing twenty-four hour care at Struan Lodge and further developing the facilities there and at the Cowal Community Hospital with a view to creating a centre of excellence in adult care for the people of Cowal.

In August 2017 a Struan Lodge Redesign Project Group was set up and since then has met on four occasions and created two sub groups to investigate and report on specific issues. These sub groups were set up after considering the priority issues for the Redesign Project Group. These priorities were determined in order to meet the timetable for reporting back to the Integrated Joint Board in March 2018 and to be in a position to offer the required savings in the operation of Struan Lodge while giving time to review the medium and longer term services that would be needed to meet the needs of the people of Cowal given the anticipated demographics for the area while meeting the Scottish Governments targets for providing care in a manner which would allow people to remain in their own homes rather than be cared for in hospitals or residential care facilities.

This being the case the Struan Lodge Redesign Project Group decided that there were three key areas to initially concentrate on and these are:-

  • The development of day services  to a wider clientele throughout Cowal
  • The use of Struan Lodge for provision of reablement services that will help reduce the number of days spent in hospital awaiting discharge and the use of Struan Lodge to reduce unnecessary admission to hospital, a  process known as Step Up/Step Down
  • That the Health and Social Care Partnership and the Struan Lodge Development Group reach an agreed position regarding statistical data which sets out the forecast demographic figures for Cowal and how this will impact on the forecast needs for care.

MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC and INTERESTED COMMUNITY GROUPS ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND ONE OR BOTH EVENTS

STEWART FENWICK CELEBRATES 500th CELTIC COUNTRY 5TH NOVEMBER

 STEWART-FENWICK-225x300

For 500 Programmes Stewart has brought us a mix of Country music from the Celtic lands plus the Country music gig guide for Scotland. Stewart has been broadcasting for over 40 years, firstly on his school station, “Radio Lornshill”, then on Radio Airthrey at Stirling University, where he ended an eight year run in 1988 with a 24 hour broadcast. He went on to present “Country Gold” on Central FM in Scotland for 15 years, as well as writing for Country Music & Dance In Scotland, and Country Music & More.  

This Sunday will be the 500th Celtic Country programme on Celtic Music Radio, having began back in the early days, when the programme was only broadcast during Celtic Connections and we have been proud to broadcast his weekly programme from the beginning of our DCR97.4FM broadcast

To celebrate Stewart will be having a CD Giveaway in a simple competition- who is the most played artist over the 500 programmes (Stewart has played over 2300), and as a secondary bonus question, who is most played Scottish act (born or based here). Just post your answers on Stewarts Face Book page  https://www.facebook.com/stewart.fenwick  by Sunday 5th November – go on, have a guess.

To help Stewart celebrate he will introduce special guest

 Georgie Jack 2

Geordie Jack, who wrote “Crazy Celtic Music”, the very first track played on the programme, is best known as frontman with Colorado, the British Country Music Association’s Band of The Year right through the 1980’s. Geordie is still as popular as ever, and only last weekend, headlined the Northern Nashville Caithness CMC 30th Anniversary Event. His latest album, “Choices” continues to be one of the most popular CD’s on the Scottish Country music scene.

Weekend-of-Dancing2018-800x800

Lisa McHugh visited the programme, back when she had just released her debut single “Old Fashioned Girl”.

Since then, Lisa has moved to Ireland, but we’ve never forgotten her Glasgow roots on the programme. Six albums later, and the Glasgow girl is now one of Ireland’s biggest Country stars, and has just released her latest album, “Who I Am”.

Alan-Broom

Allan Broom, who has been around since the first programme, has acted as the reception committee for most of the visiting guests, will also be on hand to share some of the memories.
