Alyth Allotments: ADT is supporting a local working group in an allotments for all project for our town. Attracting support from funders who are only interested in allotments, the group is now developing detailed plans and recruiting town residents who would like to be involved in this exciting work – either to reserve a plot or be a volunteer — or both.
Alyth Online: ADT is working with community groups, organisations and businesses to create a unique community resource called Alyth Online. We’re building a website that will help promote Alyth and its events, assets and attractions to locals, visitors and the world at large
Millhaugh site: ADT is working on ambitious plans for the unused former sawmill at Millhaugh on Bamff Road, aiming to transform it into a major community asset and gateway to the Den O’Alyth. ADT has secured more than £170,000 of government funding to acquire and begin redeveloping the site for a range of educational, environmental, social, and tourism-related activities on behalf of the local community.
Diamond Jubilee Park upgrade: We’re supporting a working group of community members to make much more of the Diamond Jubilee Park. The group has already built an all-weather footpath round the Park designed to make it more wheelchair- and pram-friendly, and has installed new seating and play equipment for the Park. Get in touch here if you’d like to be involved, or you can message us on Facebook.
