Bag­sof help­for Coupar project

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS - Clare Damodaran

The But­tery­bank Com­mu­nity Wood­land project has been awarded £1000 in the Fe­bru­ary round of Tesco’s Bags of Help grant scheme.

The money will be used to fund pic­nic benches for the site in an ef­fort to en­cour­age more vis­i­tors to the com­mu­nity wood­land, which is lo­cated on the out­skirts of Coupar An­gus.

Those be­hind the wood­land, a For­ward Coupar An­gus project, thanked ev­ery­one who voted for them to re­ceive the fund­ing.

A spokesper­son for the group said: “Due to the un­par­al­leled views across the River Isla and Strath­more, the pic­nic benches will add fur­ther pur­pose to the once aban­doned field that is now home to more that 800 small trees planted by com­mu­nity vol­un­teers.

“We would like to thank Tesco and the pub­lic for their votes and hope that the pic­nic benches will be a val­ued feature of the site, en­cour­ag­ing fam­i­lies along to ex­plore But­tery­bank and en­gage with the out­doors.”

Or­gan­is­ers also added their thanks to the vol­un­teers who helped out at the wood­land at two ses­sions this month.
