Windfarm Cash Helps Contin Gather Stories from the Past

12 November 2018

An oral history project in Contin will benefit from a grant of £2,600 from the EDF Renewables Contin Community Fund linked to the Corriemoillie wind farm.

‘What Contin Means to Me’ will gather memories and stories from local people. The project will also produce a leaflet about a popular local walk which will help locals and visitors explore an area with a rich and varied history.

Phil Baarda, the Contin history project coordinator said: We’re delighted we have got funding to go ahead with this project to discover what Contin means to people. We’re keen to speak and listen to anyone who lives in Contin, or has some connection to the place, so we can celebrate the area and its history - from today back through the ages to the earliest times - so we can celebrate Contin’s stories, people, history and landscape, through our inhabitants and their memories.   We’d love to hear from anyone who would like to be involved - please contact philbaarda@hotmail.com for more information.”

The EDF Renewables Contin Community Fund is alsoawarding £1,034 to support the production of six issues of the Contin Post, a new community newsletter set up by a group of local volunteers. This will be delivered to every house in Contin and keep residents updated on what’s going on in the area.

Nick Bradford, Head of Asset Management at EDF Renewables said, “It is great to see the local community putting the fund to good use. I hope as many people as possible get involved in the ‘What Contin means to me’ project and the Contin Post is well read. I’d encourage more people to apply for funding for their projects before the deadline in February.”

The next round of applications to the Contin Community Fund closes on Monday 4 February 2018. For further information about how to apply to the Fund visit /programmes/contin/ or telephone Foundation Scotland on 0131 524 0300.
