Stevenson Helps Kick-Off 'Bucks for Buckie' Event

Local MSP Stewart Stevenson today (Saturday) helped to get the ‘Bucks for Buckie’ event at the town’s High School underway.

The event, organised by the Buckie Area Forum Regeneration Group, is an exercise in “participatory budgeting” where local groups make their pitch for a share of £20,000-worth of funding. An audience of members of the public from the local community then vote after hearing each groups’ presentation on which projects they feel should get a share of the funding.

Commenting, Stewart Stevenson MSP said:

“I was delighted to be asked along to contribute to what was an absolutely fascinating day. In a lot of ways, there’s no better way of deciding which projects should get public funding than by asking an informed public.

“The groups involved all had very worthwhile projects they were promoting and had clearly put a lot of thought into their presentations to the “electorate” gathered at Buckie High School.

“Great credit is due to the members of the Buckie Area Forum Regeneration Group for hosting the event and also to all the community groups and members of the public who took part.”
