SNP councillor for New Byth Ross Cassie and local MSP Stewart Stevenson have welcomed the grant award from Awards for All Scotland towards equipment for the village’s playing field.
Commenting, Cllr Ross Cassie said:
“Awards for All Scotland gives groups across our country the option to apply for grants of between £500 and £10,000 for their particular projects.
“These projects will bring communities together, assist learning and improve local spaces such as in New Byth and help our communities to become more active. I congratulate the Association on this award.”
Banffshire & Buchan Coast MSP Stewart Stevenson added:
“Local communities themselves are best-placed to decide the priorities of the community, whatever those may be and volunteers who give freely of their time to make their town or village a better place deserve every encouragement.”
