Canonbie groups get windfarm cash boost


FIVE organisations have been granted awards by Canonbie community council's share of the Minsca windfarm community benefit fund.

Canonbie bowls club and Gilnockie hall are being given £250 each, Eskdale curling club will receive £300, while Half Morton hall and Canonbie and district residents' association (CADRA) are to receive £700 each.

Loraine Frew, CADRA secretary, said they had appointed a project co-ordinator who wanted to go into the school to discuss activities. Some re-enactment groups were willing to go in and do a show.

A Reiver exhibition was being held in the parish church for four days and this was part of a bigger bid to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a heritage project. There was the potential for a Reiver festival in September.
