Over the last few weeks Cumbernauld Environmental Society has had some good news which gives us the best possible start for the new year.
First of all, we had a very positive meeting with North Lanarkshire Council in which we proposed the use of vacant land in Cumbernauld for a community nursery, a community garden, and allotments. We will follow this up with North Lanarkshire Council in a few weeks and keep you all updated as we progress our plans.
Also, we have been award 105 trees from The Woodland Trust as part of their Jubilee Woods project. Preliminary plans are for the trees to be split between Broadwood Loch and Cumbernauld House Park. We will take delivery of the trees in March, with a planting event to be arranged for shortly afterwards. The news of our Jubilee Woods award was covered in this week’s Cumbernauld News.
Finally, we have been awarded £1610 in Community Grants from North Lanarkshire Council elected officials. Once we receive this money we will use it to further the aims of Cumbernauld Environmental Society as we work to make enivronmental improvements throughout our town.
And today we have published our latest Chairman’s Report. The report can be found in the “meeting minutes” page which can be accessed via the hyperlink at the top of the page.
