Parents of children at North Bute Primary in Port Bannatyne will attempt to persuade local councillors this week to work with the community on improvements to the school.

Three members of the school’s parent council will address Argyll and Bute Council’s Bute and Cowal area committee in Dunoon on Tuesday.

Chair Liz Ferguson said: “We’re worried that if the council doesn’t spend the money it has allocated to the refurbishment of the school, they will come back and try to close it again.

“We have offers from local businesses who want to work with the council, to the council’s regulations, on improving the school’s facilities, and we just want the council to let the community get involved.”
