We want to help local groups and businesses get back on their feet as we come slowly out of lockdown. So we’re building a new community website called Alyth Online which we hope will become a hub for showing the world what’s available in and around our town. You’ll be able to list your group or business on the site and include a link to your own website/media channel to help you tell the world about what you have to offer. If you’d like to know more and be among the first to be listed when the site goes live, get in touch via Facebook, or email, or via the “Contact Us” link at top right.
The minutes of our meetings in March, April and May are now available online: https://www.lovealyth.org.uk/about-alyth-development-trust/company-information/
We’ve re-opened our Community Projects Fund for applications for funding up to £2,000 for big ideas that will help to improve life in Alyth. Above are just some of the local groups and projects that we funded in Rounds 1 and 2 last year – could your group or project be joining them this summer?
Find out more and connect to the application fund here.
Read about groups and projects who have already benefitted from the Fund here.
The May edition of our e-newsletter is now available to download from the newsletter archive menu below right. Read about what we’ve been doing during lockdown.
Our next board meeting is scheduled for tomorrow, Monday 1 June, 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you login details when they are ready.
The April issue of our newsletter is now available to download, featuring updates on what we’re doing to help the community during the coronavirus crisis, plus other reports on our work: https://mailchi.mp/4c16732049d7/news-from-alyth-development-trust-12316122
We’re so proud to be part of a community coming together to tackle a crisis with so much energy, commitment and care for one another. All of us at Alyth Development Trust would like to record our praise and thanks to the Alyth Community Support Group (https://www.facebook.com/groups/944562195607741/) and their heroic volunteers for the fantastic work they’re doing in and around the town just now.
More than 20 volunteers are busy every day helping dozens of people across the town with shopping for food and supplies, running errands such as collecting prescriptions, distributing books and games for children, putting people in touch with other sources of help, and much, much more.
We at ADT feel privileged to be able to support the Group and the wider community during the lockdown, especially Ryan, Dot and the other group admins, and KT and the volunteers. We’d also like to add our own thanks for the help provided by Veronica and her Coop team with the foodbank, the Alyth Halls Committee and the Church Committee for providing their premises as bases of operations, Highland Boundary for supplies of hand sanitiser, and all the many others too numerous to mention who’ve done so much for Alyth over the past few weeks. You’re all heroes!
