Kirkconnel and Kelloholm is a community on the very northernmost edge of Dumfries & Galloway. The Kirkconnel & Kelloholm Development Trust have been successful in applying for £20,000 funding from the Scottish Government’s Community Choices Fund.
The Trust is now offering up to £2,500 to community groups and individuals with projects focussing on the local community and contributing to the themes and priorities as published in the Kirkconnel & Kelloholm Community Action Plan 2014 – 2019.
The whole community will have the chance to vote for the projects they think best meet their needs at The Big Event will take place on Sunday 19 March. On the day applicants will present their project ideas, local people will vote and the results will be announced at the event.
