Graeme Dey MSP and Mike Weir MP have warmly welcomed the award of £1,079,843 from the Big Lottery Fund’s Investing in Communities : Growing Community Assets to the Friockheim Community Hub Limited. Both Mr Dey and Mr Weir have actively supported the group in their efforts to establish the hub.
Commenting Mr Dey said
“ I would warmly congratulate Dougie Pond and his group for the enormous work they have done to reach this point and their achievement in obtaining this very substantial investment which will see a very worthwhile project come to fruition.
“ The Hub will be a huge benefit to the community of Friockheim providing space not only for local groups but also business start up space.”
Mr Weir added
“ This is a tremendous investment in the local community and it is good to see lottery money being invested in Angus in this way. The group have done a great job in taking this project from its initial vision to such a huge investment. The present and future residents of Friockheim will have a great asset.”
