Scotland Loves Local Project
Join us for our first speaker event of 2021! With Audrey Michie and David McCubbin of Aberdeenshire Council as they talk to us about the funding Aberdeenshire Council has secured: The Scotland Loves Local fund, monies from the Scottish Government, administered by the Scotland Town Partnership to deliver a Scotland Loves Local project for Aberdeenshire town centres and businesses.
The overall aim is to promote the amazing businesses in Aberdeenshire towns and to encourage residents in Aberdeenshire, Aberdeen, Moray and bordering areas to visit and spend locally.
The project will complement existing town and business level activity, providing training and skills support and access to advice and suppliers.
