David Knight from the Big Lottery was on Westray on Thursday 5th July to carry out an inspection of the projects that they funded. He was very complimentary of the success of the projects which included the turbine, fuel poverty, learning centre, golf course, biofuels and waste.
With work progressing well on the golf course, the Golf Club put in a bid for funding to purchase a tractor. The board decided to award £6000 towards the cost of this.
WDT have agreed to part fund a project manager to oversee the course development work on the community-owned golf course for the next two years. This will build on the work that has already been done to address coastal erosion.
