A new project for the Blacklands area in Kilwinning is underway – Blacklands Community Kitty.

This is a localised participatory budgeting type event where local people/groups/businesses can apply for grants of up to £1000 to help support their idea which will be of benefit to people living or visiting the Blacklands area.

The project is Community Led with criteria, applications and voting process all being decided by a group of local community members.
