Great news about a new grant scheme available to help nurture Nairnshire
Nairn Highland Councillors have set aside £25,000 from the local Ward Discretionary budget to let the local community decide for themselves which projects are needed in their area.
Community and voluntary groups in Nairnshire are being encouraged to think of projects that add value to their day-to-day activities. Grants of £200 – £2,500 will be available for groups to put these ideas into action.
Any local community, voluntary or non-profit group can apply; projects can be large or small and should aim to make Nairnshire a better place. The funding can be used to fund new projects or go toward bigger projects or ideas.
Projects that meet the eligibility criteria will be asked to present their ideas at a ‘Nurturing Nairnshire’ community event on Saturday 12 March, 10am in the Community and Arts Centre, King Street, Nairn, where local people will collectively agree what projects should be supported.
