Falkirk, City of Edinburgh and East Lothian councils are the latest to pledge their support for the John Muir Way with the signing of a concordat.
Keith Geddes from the Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) has been meeting council leaders and chief executives to sign the agreement which will benefit the outstanding coast to coast walking and cycling route which stretches 134 miles between Helensburgh and Dunbar.
A Wishaw community sports group which offers cycling activities at Wishawhill Wood pump track has a new set of wheels thanks to Central Scotland Green Network Trust’s (CSGNT) kind donation of a van.
CSGNT gifted the van to Socialtrack, a community interest company that organises cycling and mountain biking activities for local residents. The donation of the van will enable organisers to easily transport bikes for local children and teenagers attending the fun sessions.
Thanks to funding from The Scottish Government and The Greggs Foundation, The Central Scotland Green Network Trust are supporting Buglife to create 25 pollinator ‘hubs’ at various points along the John Muir Way. This funding will allow Buglife Scotland the opportunity to expand and bolster the work already being undertaken to create the first urban B-lines in Scotland, The John Muir Pollinator Way.
