Two years ago we posted about the Dippol Burn at Auchinleck and how we reintroduced a few trout to it following 40 years without these fish after they were killed by pollution.
This Saturday 4th March we are at the Boswell Centre seeking for a small grant at the Auchinleck Decides Event. This will allow ART and volunteers from the community to do work to improve habitat within the Dippol Burn and to introduce more fish now that we know they can survive.
Community Choices Funds will be be awarded on the day to projects that Auchinleck residents of all ages support. If you live in Auchinleck and want to support our wee project or even better take part too, then come along and give us a vote. We will need as many as possible to get a share of the funding. Bring mum, bring dad, bring the kids, the more the better. Doors open at 11.30am and the event starts at 12.00 noon. Hopefully by 3.30pm we should have enough votes to leave with a small cheque.
