Community funding available for Troon and surrounding villages

 02 February 2018  |  


People in Troon and the surrounding village are being encouraged to show their support for local community groups by voting on their favourites. The latest Troon decision day will be held on Saturday, 10 February at the Troon Concert Hall.

The Troon and villages locality planning group event is part of a drive to get people actively involved in local decision making known as 'Participatory Budgeting'. Building on the success of recent community funding decision days, this latest marketplace event will see 31 groups display ideas for community projects to local people who are being invited to drop-in to vote to award funding.

Up to £55,000 is available at the event and groups can be funded up to £1,000, with larger projects of up to £5,000 also being considered. Voting is open to anyone who lives, works, volunteers or studies in Barassie, Dundonald, Loans, Muirhead or Troon, aged 10+.

The money is being made available from South Ayrshire Council and South Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership.

The 'Decision Day' event takes place at the Troon Concert Hall on Saturday 10 February between 10am and 12noon.  For more information call Seonaid Lewis on 01292 559 359 or email: Seonaid.Lewis@south-ayrshire.gov.uk
