Cash grants help out community

GROUPS in the Queensferry area have benefited from grants over the past year thanks to the city council’s Almond Neighbourhood Partnership.

Each year the Partnership allocates community grants to local groups and organisations in the Almond ward area which covers Queensferry, Kirkliston, Ratho, Cramond and Davidson’s Mains.

So far, Queensferry, Rosebery Hall and Kirkliston Community Education Centres have benefited to the tune of £1500 to assist with their summer activity programme.

Queensferry Ambition received £2000 towards the design and production of a tourist pocket map, while Queensferry Rowing Club this month received £1000 towards their second community rowing boat.
