|AWARD FOR INITIATIVE|
Auchencairn Initiative has been awarded the Leader+, European Fund Award for 'Reinvigorating the local economy' against some pretty good opposition.
This was announced at an awards dinner and ceremony at the Easterbrook Hall on 15 November.
The dinner was attended by Ross Paton, Dorothy Anderson, David Dunstan and George Brockbank on behalf of the Initiative.
The award consists of a large engraved glass bowl which we will put in the new shop and Post Office. Winning does mean that the Initiative is in a strong position for the next round of European funding if we have a suitable project.
