Participatory Budgeting Success

Decision Day for the Three Towns Participatory Budget event was Saturday 21 st May, with a full day of presentations from a variety of local organisations at the new Saltcoats Town Hall. It was a great day to see how much the community has got to offer in terms of activities for children and the amount of time each voluntary group put in to their cause.

Chairman Ian MacPherson alongside club members Andy Macpherson, Holly McNamara and Martin Johnson delivered a 3 minute presentation on why our project should get funding to everyone in the hall.  After 37 organisations delivered their presentation and voted on who should get funding, we were notified that we would get full funding of our project to support our ongoing activities within North Ayrshire.

Recently, we gratefully received another year of funding from our friends at the Stanley Morrison Trust, for support for basic equipment and for this year’s North Ayrshire Open.
