The Scottish Government has pledged almost £140,000 towards regenerating Kilsyth Main Street.

Social Justice Secretary Alex Neil has announced the £1.7 million Town Centre Communities Capital Fund, which is being split across 21 projects in Scotland.

One of the largest grants, of £139,500, has been made to Kilsyth Community Market Garden after they submitted their plans for consideration.

Mr Neil made the announcement while visiting another group, CVS Inverclyde in Greenock. He said: “I’m delighted to be able to announce this support for community organisation across Scotland. The £1.7 million fund will give enterprising communities the chance to take forward improvements to their area that complement our Town Centre Action Plan.

“By giving community organisations the opportunities to take action we can help make town centres the attractive and accessible thriving places we know they can be.”
