CALLANDER HYDRO FUND
The Callander Community Hydro Fund made five awards at its meeting in November 2020:

  • £5,875 to Callander Community Council, match funding to enable a funding application to the Landfill Tax Trust for refurbishments at Camp Place Play Park.
  • £1,080 to a working group with members from the Development Trust, Community Council and Callander Enterprise, for Christmas lighting in Ancaster Square.
  • £4,000 to Drumardoch Estate to surface a path along the A821 at Kilmahog, linking the A84 to National Cycle route 7.
  • £2,136 to McLaren Leisure to set up an on-line booking system as part of their Covid-19 response.
  • £4,933 to Callander Youth Project to purchase nursing equipment for a fully accessible glamping pod.

The Hydro Fund Committee is part of the Callander Community Development Trust. The funds are generated by a hydro-electric generating scheme on Stank Burn by Loch Lubnaig that was built and is run by a group of volunteers through Callander Community Hydro Ltd, a company owned by the Trust. Anyone can apply to the fund for support for projects or activities that will benefit Callander. The next deadline is 31 December for a decision in February. More details here.
