Gibson welcomes funding announcement for North community

News release
Immediate release

Highlands and Islands SNP MSP Rob Gibson has welcomed funding for Latheron, Lybster and Clyth Community Development Company for allotments and polytunnels.

The £48,991 worth of funding comes from the Scottish Government's Climate Challenge Fund.

Mr Gibson said that that the money will make a positive difference…

"Local food production is a vital ingredient for sustainable communities across the country. Many people say they want to grow their own food so this money will help."

"The climate change era means that local food production is going to become more and more important, so cash to happen is positive. This is a substantial support from the Scottish Government for communities of East Caithness."

"I congratulate the LLCCDC for winning this award. I hope that their lead can be followed in other parts of the North."
