Our next board meeting is scheduled for this coming Monday 6 July, starting at 7.00pm. As normal during lockdown, it’s going to be a virtual meeting over the internet, but that doesn’t mean we wouldn’t welcome guests who want to sit in and hear more about what we’re currently up to. If you’d like to listen in, please email us via email@example.com and we’ll send you login details when they are ready.
Alyth Community Council, with the help of SSE’s Drumderg Windfarm, is offering local Groups or Associations financial assistance with micro-grants up to the value of £500. The grants are for community projects that enhance the quality of life in Alyth.
The SSE have laid down some limitations on which types of funding can be awarded but these are not too onerous. Projects outside the Drumderg area or contrary to SSE’s interests aren’t eligible, nor is any project with a political or religious aspect nor which involves firearms or is intended to cover direct energy costs. You can’t apply for projects that have already been completed either, nor for work that should be done by statutory authorities.
For an application form and the full terms and conditions, apply to any member of Alyth Community Council including Iain Donaldson Tel: 01828 632479.
Do you have a project that needs a bit of wind in its sails? There are just four days to go until the deadline for getting your bids in for Round 3 of our Community Projects Fund. More details and a link to the application form here: https://www.lovealyth.org.uk/…/alyth-community-projects-fu…/
