Central Scotland Green Network has launched the Community Project Fund 2017 to support community projects working 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) - will provide 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.
Work is underway to transform the popular Jookers Johnnie pedestrian route in Lanark.
The innovative access improvement project in the heart of South Lanarkshire will help to increase active travel opportunities for local people and bring benefits to the local environment.
A 16-year-old Scottish filmmaker has followed in the footsteps of John Muir, creating a short film on the wild places found along the John Muir Way.
Zeki Basan, from Speyside, walked and cycled all 134 miles of the John Muir Way - which stretches from Helensburgh in the west to Muir’s birthplace in Dunbar on the east coast - documenting his experience in a short film to inspire others to make the journey and embrace the natural environment around them.
