More time to apply for Aird and Loch Ness cash
“Your Ward, Your Cash, Your Choice”
The deadline to apply for Aird and Loch Ness Ward participatory budgeting cash has been extended to 9am Monday 13 February.
Community groups in the Aird and Loch Ness Ward are being urged to apply for grants available from £100 up to £1,500 that are available from a £15,000 Ward Discretionary Budget.
Participatory budgeting is a process that lets the local community decide for themselves how money is spent and which community projects are needed in their area.
The fund is open to any local community, voluntary or non-profit organisations and informal groups that are based in Ward 13. Projects put forward can be large or small, add value to existing projects or be something completely new.
Representatives from the projects that meet the eligibility criteria will be asked to present their ideas to members of the public who will then cast their votes during a special event held on Saturday 18 February at the Craigmonie Centre in Drumnadrochit.
Full details and the application forms are available from the Craigmonie Centre; online at http://www.craigmoniecentre.co.uk/index.asp?pageid=663461 e-mail Craigmoniecc@highlifehighland.com or phone 01456 459224.
The new deadline for applications is 9am on Monday 13 February
