What has WSWG been doing this past couple of months?
- We are deep in the process of looking at the financials for the project as well as thinking about CO2 issues around our action for the climate emergency. The woodland valuations are also now underway.
- We are delighted to say we have been awarded funding from the PKC Community Investment Fund to help with the staging of the forthcoming community consultation on the WSWG project proposals for community ownership of the woods.
“Feeling Good in the Woods” – update
- We rounded off this wonderful programme of community engagement events with 10 “Woodland in a Backpack” sessions run by the brilliant Biscuit of Wee Adventures in 7 local primary schools:
- Stanley Primary
- Auchtergaven Primary and Nursery
- Murthly Primary
- Glendelvine Primary
- Luncarty Primary
- Logiealmond Primary
- Royal School of Dunkeld Primary and Nursery
The sessions were a really fun way of learning and a great introduction for the children to the WSWG project.
What’s next in WSWG’s community engagement plans?
Some of the ideas we are working on at the moment for you to get involved in over the next few months are:
- Access Audit Walks and Workshops
- Community Consultation Events
