North-East MSPs Encourage Applications for Town Centres Fund

North-east MSPs are calling on businesses and projects to apply for a new £1million fund to help promote town centres and online businesses and encourage people to shop locally.

The Scottish Government fund will provide grants of between £500 and £5000 will be given out as part of the Scotland Loves Local Scheme.

The move has been welcomed by Aberdeenshire East MSP Gillian Martin and Banffshire and Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson.

Funding is aimed at supporting small scale improvement which will help people to shop whilst also ensuring public health safety and the cash can be used for protective screens, physical distancing markers, hand sanitising equipment and PPE.
Commenting, Gillian Martin MSP said:

“We all have a role to play in Scotland’s economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic, and it’s now more important than ever to consider shopping locally and supporting the brilliant local businesses in the north-east.

“The Scotland Loves Local campaign - which will provide grants of between £500 and £5,000 - encourages people to think how they can safely support people to shop, eat and relax within their community whilst ensuring public health safety.”

Stewart Stevenson MSP added:

“This £1million fund, delivered by the Scottish Government, is an exciting opportunity for local projects and locally-based online businesses to support town centres and promote their local community.

"I have no doubt this new fund will be a real boost for communities across the north-east.”
