Very pleased to say the KCDT produced Kirknewton Maps have been distributed to 16,000 school bags across West Lothian.
An additional 4000 maps have been distributed across Kirknewton, new homes in Calderwood and Ratho, outlets such as Dalmahoy Hotel, Jupiter Artland, local shops and Visit West Lothian leaflet racks in several major tourist attractions across West Lothian.
If you have friends and relatives visiting then please let them know about local accommodation (listed on the map), cycling routes, places to visit and walks from Selm Muir Wood (with walk/cycle tracks developed by KCDT volunteers with Forestry Commission and Friends of the Pentlands) or around Harperrig Reservoir (the new car park was funded by LandTrust & KCDT, working with local contractors, WLC and Harperrig Local Nature Reserve Management Group). You may even find out something new about the local area you live (we did!).
Funding for the map was sourced by KCDT, was developed by a paid placement student from Napier University, designed by a local company and paid distribution by local people. An additional web and social media campaign is being launched to support the maps.
KCDT endeavour to encourage support for local business, maintain local employment, promote our local environment, provide skills and education opportunities and enhance the local economy for the benefit of our community. We hope such projects are an example of this and thanks for the kind comments we have received. Enjoy the sun and the great outdoors!
