Banff and Buchan Councillors will decide whether or not to approve funding requests for Homecoming funds on Tuesday, April 1.
As part of the support for Homecoming 2014, Aberdeenshire Council has allocated £10,000 to each area committee to be used to support local communities and groups who wish to celebrate the event.
Councillors from Banff and Buchan will, next week, now decide whether or not to approve the applications, each for £3,500, to the Fraserburgh Development Trust and to the Coast Festival.
The FDT’s event, ‘Home From Home’, is aimed at drawing in visitors to the North-east through use of its musical and artistic heritage, the proposal to showcase visual art within the town and to present a series of musical concerts with performers living, working or who were born in the AB43 area.
The Banff and Buchan Area Committee will meet in Banff.
