Town team volunteer urges community groups to cash in
A DEDICATED Fort William volunteer has encouraged communities in Lochaber to apply for funding to improve their town or village.
Groups are being invited to bid for government money through the ‘charrette programme’.
A similar initiative last year saw the formation of Fort William’s town team.
Since then the group has spent time painting, cleaning, weeding and planting flowers around the town
Norrie MacLean, chairman of the team, said: ‘Locals should do anything they can to take pride in their community.’ More information about how to apply is available at www.gov. scot/ Topics/ Built-Environment/ Aa n d P/ P r o j e c t s / S SC I / Mainstreaming.
