Wind Farm Funding for Forth Valley Orienteers

01 December 2014

Forth Valley Orienteers is celebrating after receiving a cash boost from the Earlsburn Community Fund to create an orienteering map of Barr Wood. The current map of Barr Wood is 22 years old and in need of updating. The £750 grant from the fund will allow the group to carry out the necessary survey work and preparation of a new digital map. It is hoped then the Barr Wood can attract both domestic and international orienteering competitions.

The fund is provided by wind farm developers Falck Renewables Wind, through their subsidiary Earlsburn Wind Energy Limited. Foundation Scotland was appointed by Falck Renewables Wind to manage and administer the community fund. The Foundation work with an advisory panel made up of representatives from Cambusbarron, Carron Valley and Denny and District to help them decide how funds should be allocated.

Erin Murchie, Community Relations Manager, Falk said, “We are delighted to be able to help bring the map of Barr Wood up to date. It would be a real boost for the area to attract national and international competitions and we wish Forth Valley Orienteers well with their plans.”

Other beneficiaries from the recent award panel include; Cambusbarron Community Council, to deliver a monthly community newsletter, Denny Community Support Group to take 40 young people to the Christmas pantomime, CR Cats to buy 2 slalom boats to help train local children and Denny and Dunipace YMCA to renovate parts of their community hall.
