Combining the expertise of FDT and TS the project will aim to provide FDT’s bespoke energy advice service to homes and communities across the Stirling Council area in addition to TS mobile upcycling and repurposing wood workshops. The project will last for one year in the first instance. To facilitate the application FDT and TS would be grateful for your opinions.

Debbie for another amazing tea room. Jon, Chris, Colin and Kevin for the fab BBQ – they all looked ‘cooked’ by the end if it! The amazing bar staff! Claire and her helpers selling raffle tickets – and so many others for helping with the setup on Friday night putting up gazebos and stalls. It’s what makes for a fabulous day, everyone just mucking in!
