We are pleased to advise that at Wednesday's budget setting meeting, Falkirk Council committed to supporting the work of the Trust for 2017/18, with an enhanced payment to include capital projects.
The Council grant package includes extra money from the local authority to retain the heritage learning and outdoor activities team within the Community Trust, as well as the area’s fireworks display at Callendar Park in November, to support public safety.
Ian Scott, Chairman of Falkirk Community Trust, said: “The Trust is delighted to receive the news that Falkirk Council is supporting investment to develop key facilities such as FTH, Callendar House and The Mariner Centre among others.
“The reduction to the previous proposed budget cut has also allowed us to carry on the work the Outdoor Activities team does within schools as well as the Community, not to mention our Heritage Learning activities and of course the annual Fireworks celebration at Callendar Park.
“Strong partnership working with the Council will allow us to continue to deliver such vital community services. We welcome the announcement from Falkirk Council and we are anticipating a busy, productive year ahead.”
