Community Funding Opportunities in Bearsden

Local community groups are invited to apply to Glasgow Airport’s Flightpath Fund for help with projects that will benefit the local community in the flightpath area. The Fund focuses on education, environment and employment, doesn’t consider applications that cover a wider geographical area, and helps with discrete projects rather than running costs.

Over the past year, small grants have been made in the Bearsden area to: Westerton Male Voice Choir for a new mobile stage; a Bearsden Scout group for a new boiler; Mosshead Primary Parent Council to improve their sound system; and Maxholme Pre-school, to help it bring its new premises up to Care Commission standards.

Lib Dem Councillor for Bearsden North Rosie O'Neil said, “As East Dunbartonshire’s representative on the committee, I am often asked to vet applications from this area prior to the committee meeting, and I’m happy to have a quick chat with any local community group thinking of applying on how best to present their application.”
