Stevenson Welcomes Lottery Funding For Banffshire & Buchan Coast Projects

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson has welcomed the announcement that several projects in the Banffshire & Buchan Coast area have been awarded funds under the Big Lottery Fund’s Awards for All scheme.

People First in Fraserburgh has been awarded £4,820 to offer a weekly music class on Friday afternoons to adults with learning difficulties, as well as some additional one to one tuition. Meanwhile Friends of Buckie Guiding has received £10,000 to refurbish their hall and see a new, more efficient heating system installed.

Cornhill Village Community Trust has been awarded £10,000 to complete the second phase of the refurbishment of the Hay Memorial Hall. This will see the original flooring replaced, the exterior stonework repointed and the original Victorian railings renovated. Additionally, Macduff Primary School has been awarded £8,951 to develop an eco-garden within the school grounds.

Commenting, Mr Stevenson said:

“I am delighted that all four of these excellent projects in Banffshire & Buchan Coast have received funding from this round of awards. All four projects have in common that they are important parts of their local communities and I know that everyone in the local area will be delighted that they have successfully secured funding.

“This funding will help to bring about significant improvements and will no doubt be warmly welcomed by everyone who is set to benefit from them.

“This is excellent news for Banffshire & Buchan Coast and I warmly congratulate everyone who has been involved in making these funding applications a success.”
