Pitteuchar Stenton and Finglassie Community Council’s plans to upgrade the area’s delapidated play parks have been give a welcome boost.

For local the Co-op store has pledged to offer financial support for the plans having made the council’s play park project their designated charity for 2014.

The Community Council recently surveyed the local residents about issues and concerns in the community and the state of the children’s play areas was seen as the main priority by a vast majority.

“The state of children’s play areas was overwhelmingly the most urgent issue residents want to see action on and we’re delighted that staff at the Co-op store in Finglassie have offered their support,” said Peter Scobie, community council chairman.

“This has given our plans a huge boost and we hope to have plans of what the new play area will look like available to the public in March,” he added.

The Community Council have already pledged £600 towards the project from their own funds and are hopeful of further funding from the Play4All scheme .

Colin Hickman, store manager said it was worthy cause.

“Peter and his colleagues have done a lot to improve the local community and as a company we recognise that and are more than willing to offer our support throughout 2014” said Colin.
