We have spent the last few weeks using our Development Grant from the Climate Challenge Fund to look at ideas for possible carbon reduction projects in Glencairn. These are some of the ideas that have come out of our local consultation. (You can get a closer look by clicking on the individual pictures.)
We have created a quick online Survey, so that you can vote for the scheme that you would like us to carry forward. There are just 6 questions to answer, to let us know your preferences. It only takes 5 minutes, and it’s completely anonymous. So why not click on the link now!
We are pleased to announce that Moniaive Initiative have been granted £8,889 towards the Aerial Runway element of our proposed Park Improvement project by Dumfries & Galloway based charity, the Holywood Trust, an organisation dedicated to creating and improving opportunities for young people across the region.
This latest award brings the total of secured funding to date up to approximately £18,800. Thank you to everyone who has donated to date, particularly the staff of Watsons Groceries, who donated over £100 from the sale of the “Big Graham” calendar over the Christmas & New Year.
Legal negotiations to secure the necessary lease on the park are still ongoing, but once this has been achieved, Moniaive Initiative will be in a position to submit grant applications for the remainder of the funds required.
We are pleased to announce that Moniaive Initiative have been awarded a Development Grant from the Climate Challenge Fund (CFF) to look at possible climate action projects. You can help by sharing your ideas or even coming along to one of our workshops – please let us know if you’d be interested in this. Further details on the poster below.
