Clackmannan’s Community garden project grows from strength to strength following a funding boost from Clackmannanshire Council’s Community Empowerment Fund.
The award of £2250 will enable the group, made up of 20 local residents, to continue with the development of the site attached to Clackmannan Town Hall – which is managed by Clackmannan Town Hall Trust to; build fencing, create access paths and buy planters.
The group of volunteers – who formed last summer, have made terrific progress in transforming the former wasteland into a safe, useable space for the local community to enjoy.
Chairperson of the garden group Margaret Schofield said…
“We are delighted to receive this award after work come to a halt towards the end of last year after we had completed the first phase of the project. This award will enable us to build the remaining structure of the garden so we can begin planting later in the year and will help take us another step closer to creating a garden where people can help with gardening, offer advice or just sit and chat.”
The group would like to thank the local community for all their support towards the project so far and are looking forward to working with Clackmannan Primary School – who have been asked to come up with a name and logo for the garden.
