Latest awards welcomed by councillors

Peterhead North and Rattray SNP councillors Fiona McRae and Anne Allan have welcomed the latest round of funding awards from the Buchan Area Initiative 2012.

The awards, agreed by councillors at a meeting of the Buchan Area Committee this week, include £3000 to Lonmay Public Hall Trust and £3000 to St Fergus Community Association.

Commenting, Cllr Fiona McRae said: “These funding awards are vitally important and they have the potential to lever in match-funding from a variety of other sources.

“I know, for example, that Lonmay Public Hall’s award will be put towards a further upgrade of the hall, while St Fergus Community Association will use their award towards the final phase of their Community Park Improvements.”
