Alan Somerville, Senior Development Officer of Cunninghame Housing Association recently presented a cheque for £1,000 to members of the Gretna and Rigg Community Council.
Gretna and Rigg Community Council is a voluntary, non-profit making organisation. They meet once a month to discuss all matters in relation to their community council area, planning and funding applications. A public forum is part of the agenda where everyone is welcome to share their concerns, ideas and proposals to make Gretna and Rigg a good place to live. The Community Council have created a Facebook page where they share information about events in and around the area, funding they have received, details of meetings and any other information of relevance to the local residents.
Cunninghame Housing Association are delighted to have provided funding this year to assist with the cost of displaying this year’s Christmas lights, all of which proves to be a costly task, especially in the current climate.
Lesley Keenan, Chairperson of CHA commented, “We are delighted to be able to provide financial support to the Gretna and Rigg Community Council, assisting with such a project that will help brighten up the streets during the festive period and spreading some joy and cheer within the community.”
The funding for the Gretna and Rigg Community Council came from the Associations
“Making Our Communities a Better Place Fund” which operates throughout the year (1 st April to 31st March) until the allocated funding is exhausted.
