Fund­ing chance for lo­cal groups

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Com­mu­nity groups, clubs and schools in Cam­bus­lang are be­ing in­vited to ap­ply for fund­ing for projects which boost the lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.

The Green­ing Cam­bus­lang: chang­ing neigh­bour­hoods for the bet­ter ini­tia­tive has £12,000 to share with peo­ple and or­gan­i­sa­tions keen to make a pos­i­tive im­pact on the en­vi­ron­ment in their area.

A Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil ini­tia­tive, the project aims to see com­mu­nity gar­dens, pub­lic art and street fur­ni­ture in­stalled in neigh­bour­hoods across the com­mu­nity coun­cil area.

Ap­pli­ca­tions are now be­ing sought from groups which are work­ing to make a pos­i­tive and vis­i­ble dif­fer­ence to the greenspace or pub­lic space in their neigh­bour­hood.

For more in­for­ma­tion and an ap­pli­ca­tion form email GreenCam­bus­lang@aol.com or call Jan on 0141-646-0123.

Cam­bus­lang Com­mu­nity Coun­cil was awarded £59,000 by the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment to im­ple­ment the Green­ing Cam­bus­lang ini­tia­tive. The pro­gramme fol­lows the Green­ing the Main Street project which saw planters, hang­ing bas­kets and flower beds in­tro­duced on the busy thor­ough­fare.
