Words courtesy of Cllr Ian Mollison. The European Funding for Local Community Development – also known as Leader funding – has a start date. Here in Kincardine and Mearns we are part of the South Aberdeenshire Local Action Group who provide guidance and support to community groups. There is an event on Tuesday 17 November to meet the action team in Stonehaven’s Station Hotel from 7pm – 8.30pm. The funding pot is almost £3m to be shared between Marr, Garioch and the Kincardine and Mearns communities.
It is available to community groups, rural businesses and farms. If you can’t attend the launch event have a look at the website and contact the development officers.
