A new canal section forming the eastern gateway to Scotland’s historic Forth & Clyde Canal was given a royal seal of approval today (Wednesday 5th July) as it was officially named in honour of Her Majesty The Queen.
Forty-eight community projects in Scotland have been awarded £40,000 funding in total from the Central Scotland Green Network (CSGN) Community Project Fund to improve their local greenspace.
The £40,000 Community Project Fund – supported by £30,000 funding from the Greggs Foundation and £10,000 from Central Scotland Green Network Trust (CSGNT) – is providing one-off grants of up to £1,000 to support small-scale greenspace initiatives and to foster community engagement in maintaining and enhancing the local environment.
The latest CSGNT annual report is now available to download. It accounts for the work we have carried out in partnership with the Scottish Government and our stakeholders to drive forward the delivery of the CSGN, improving the vitality, health and well-being of Central Scotland.
