Funding boost for county projects

PROJECTS across Lanarkshire are set to benefit after the Central Scotland Forest Trust (CSFT) was awarded a funding boost of £130,000 from Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH).

The money will go towards the cost of 11 different projects in the Central Scotland Forest area over the next four years.

The significant financial support will contribute to a programme of activity including a range of community engagement and biodiversity initiatives.

Simon Rennie, chief executive of CSFT, said: “We’re extremely pleased to have been awarded over £130,000 by SNH which will help us to carry out a variety of environmental projects over the next few years.

“We’re grateful to our funders as we strive to benefit communities by creating a better environment, enhancing quality of life and conserving and contributing to cultural heritage and contemporary culture.”
