The Fintry Development Trust (FDT) and Transition Stirling (TS) are proposing to submit a funding application in partnership to the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF). 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.

The weather looks fine for the weekend so hopefully all events will be well attended and successful.
Another gala day over, we would like to thank everyone for coming along to help support the day. Also a huge thank you to those who helped the day go ahead.
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!
Maitland did a grand job, especially as he’s been suffering from a sore throat for the last month ! Oh and the band for another great set – you play for 4hrs and we still want more!
We hope everyone enjoyed themselves, as we certainly did
