Kirknewton Community Development Trust (KCDT) announced today that, in association with Kirknewton Community Council (KCC) they have been successful in the community bid for a new flying fox in Kirknewton Park. £13,200 was granted by West Lothian Village Improvement Fund.
A flying fox was one of the most popular choices by the children of Kirknewton Primary School when they were consulted in late 2014, as part of the overall Kirknewton Community Development Plan 2016-2020. It is hoped this will part of a series of new initiatives in the park aimed at slightly older children and adults.
Installation is pending it is hoped that it will be before the summer school holidays.
