Arts­fund for­cy­cle routes

Stirling Observer - - FRONT PAGE -

Com­mu­nity groups across Scot­land can now ap­ply for up to £5,000 in fund­ing for artis­tic and vis­ual im­prove­ments to their Na­tional Cy­cle Net­work routes.

The ArtRoots fund aims to sup­port lo­cal en­ter­prise and cul­ture, as well as en­cour­age com­mu­nity groups to help shape their lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment and in­crease their phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity lev­els.

The fund seeks to em­power com­mu­ni­ties to make im­prove­ments to their Na­tional Cy­cle Net­work routes which will make their jour­neys more at­trac­tive and en­joy­able.

Funded by Trans­port Scot­land and de­liv­ered by Sus­trans, the ArtRoots Fund has helped com­mu­nity groups like East Haven To­gether, who are now able to cel­e­brate their vil­lage’s mar­itime her­itage with the in­stal­la­tion of a strik­ing chain­saw-carved red­wood bench.

Com­mu­nity groups across Scot­land who could ben­e­fit from the fund­ing are en­cour­aged to sub­mit an on­line ex­pres­sion of in­ter­est form on the Sus­trans web­site.
