Aigas Community Forest has been an apple in our eyes for some five years but, now in possession of part funding, we are moving forward to acquire the whole forest of 700 acres. This will be gradually felled and the 60s monoculture will be replaced by native species and the forest opened up for Community use. To this end we have won a grant from Bank of Scotland of between £500 and £3000 based on votes raised in a ballot. The cash will be used for providing safety equipment, tools and training for volunteers who will be helping to clear paths, create new paths and improve the quality of the forest for it’s users. This is where you can help! We need votes as the more we get the higher the grant and the better we can look after the volunteers. Below are ways of voting and remember all the people in the household can vote. This is truly the more the merrier!
