Grants for local groups

Grants amounting to £81,290 have been awarded by the Rural Tayside LEADER Local Action Group to three projects in Rural Tayside, bringing the total grant awarded to £ 2,517,122 and the number of projects supported to 120 since the programme started in 2008.

Grants were awarded to two local groups, Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club and Glen Isla Hall Committee, together with Aberuthven Hall.

Strathmore Vintage Vehicle Club received £26,014 to extend the display, storage and workshop area at its premises to accommodate the growing collection of donated heritage and vintage artefacts, and further workshop space.

SVVC is a group of enthusiastic and committed volunteers who are playing an increasing role in promoting interest in vintage vehicles and local tourism.

Glen Isla Hall Committee is using £26,156 to redesign and refit the kitchen and upgrade the lighting and sprung floor in the main hall. The upgrading works will help to underpin the future sustainability of the hall as a community focus and venue for new activity.
