Dunbritton's Clydesider!
16/04/2014

Morven Short, our Director, has been selected as a Clydesider – a volunteer at the Commonwealth Games in July this year.  With a sporting interest in clay target shooting she is one of a relatively small team of volunteers who will be working at the Commonwealth Shooting events that will take place at Barry Budden, Carnoustie.  (Morven was Scottish Ladies Champion in 1999 and was ‘capped’ for Scotland representing her country at British & Home International events in the ‘Down the Line’ clay target shooting discipline from 1999-2004.) Morven’s official title is a catchy one - ‘International Federation Services Team Leader’!!  In other words, this means Morven will be helping and supporting the technical officials running the shooting competitions.

 

 Over 50,000 people applied to be a volunteer (a record number compared with previous Commonwealth Games) and with only 15,000 having a chance to be selected and Morven is delighted to have been one of them.  She is now undertaking training for her role, already having attended various weekend events at Hampden Stadium and the Emirates Stadium and is looking forward to collecting her uniform soon.  Morven said of her big opportunity “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I plan to enjoy this amazing experience and help make it a memorable games for the athletes, officials and spectators.”


IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT HOMEARGYLL
04/04/2014

Dunbritton Housing Association currently operates a Common Housing Register in partnership with Argyll Community Housing Association, Fyne Homes, West Highland Housing Association and Argyll and Bute Council, in order to allocate our houses. This is called HOMEArgyll.

HOMEArgyll is launching a new computerised Housing Application System, effective from 22nd April 2014. This will replace the existing allocation system where applicants must complete a hand-written form.

The new system will be completely web-based and each applicant will complete their form on-line. Applicants will also be able to amend their form online whenever their circumstances change. This will allow offers of housing to be made which best suit applicants’ current needs.

When applicants are selected for a property a full check will be carried out by staff to verify their circumstances. 

If you have applied for housing with HOMEArgyll you must re-register and apply online. The system will be available to re-register your application for housing from Tuesday 22nd April 2014 and will close on Sunday 1st June 2014. Please make sure that you complete the on-line form as accurately as possible. 

In order to remain on our Waiting List you must re-register your application form on-line between these dates. If you don’t you will need to re-apply from Monday, 2nd June 2014.

We are sure that applicants will find this new system convenient and easy to use but if you need any assistance we would be happy to assist. You are welcome to contact us on 01389 761486 or pop in to our office at 1st Floor, 32 High Street, Dumbarton.
