Years of financial uncertainty for a Bute organisation set up to provide help to voluntary groups on the island are set to be consigned to history.

On March 1, Bute Community Links (BCL) will cease to exist, and its work will be taken over by Bute Advice Centre - while the advice centre itself will move from its present home in Rothesay’s Argyle Street to the BCL premises in the town’s Bishop Street.

Bill McQueen, the acting chief executive of BCL and the chairman of Bute Advice Centre, said: “Bute Advice Centre will continue to fulfil BCL’s core function, and everything the advice centre does at present, it will continue to do.

“There will have to be some alterations to the premises, but the main attraction is that the rent, heating and lighting costs will be much less than the centre is currently paying in Argyle Street.”
