People with a range of skills and experience are being urged to step forward and help develop economic and community opportunities.
Rural development is at the heart of the project and people and businesses from Twechar, Torrance, Milton of Campsie, Lennoxtown, and Baldernock are needed to apply for the LEADER programme, which covers East Dnbartonshire, Falkirk and North Lanarkshire, and begins in autumn.
The programme will give away grants and members of the Local Action Group will ensure that the money is spent in the right place.
Closing date for applications is this Friday, May 29. For more information about the LEADER programme visit www.kvfleader.org.uk
