Stevenson Tables Motion Congratulating Macduff Scout Group on Funding

Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP, Stewart Stevenson has tabled a motion before Parliament congratulating Macduff Scout Group on its recent LEADER grant funding success.

The Macduff Scout Group has secured up to £64,560 LEADER grant funding to help refurbish the Scout hut in Macduff in Banffshire. The North Aberdeenshire Local Action Group has agreed to contribute 50% to the project. The project will seek to create a more efficient internal layout of the building, adding an extension, raising the roofline and providing a kitchen and ample storage in order to support broader community use.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said,

“I’m absolutely delighted for the Macduff Scout Group. The £64,560 LEADER grant funding is a huge boost for them. They deserve to have a suitable meeting place to conduct their activities.

“The LEADER grant is an excellent programme which delivers a bottom up approach to rural development. It allows Local Action Groups to award grants to projects that support delivery of Local Development Strategies and is an important part of the Scottish Rural Development Programme. I encourage eligible community groups apply for funding.

“These grants are awarded to business and community groups that meet local development themes. The Macduff Scout hut will give us a brilliant location to build on the themes of cooperation and sustainability. The local Scouts are a fantastic organisation and I know they will be at the centre of encouraging more constructive local activities. I look forward to welcoming their fully refurbished Scout hut.”
