Hyslop Highlights £340,000 Games Legacy Funding for West Lothian
On the run up to the Commonwealth Games at the end of this month, Constituency MSP Fiona Hyslop has highlighted the local benefits of the Games Legacy.
In round three of the Legacy 2014 Active Places Fund, West Lothian Council was awarded £340,000 for projects in Bathgate, Whitburn, (Linlithgow) and Broxburn.
“After a momentous 248-day global journey through the Commonwealth – the baton is back travelling across Scotland – signaling the final countdown to the greatest games ever.
“The Legacy 2014 Active Places has awarded a number of our local active spaces with funding including the existing Kirkton Park Tennis Court in Bathgate and Broxburn United Football Club. The money will also help develop a new Skate Park at the KGV in Whitburn and a Stephen Gallacher Foundation Golf Course.
“The funding is a great investment for the young sporting heroes from West Lothian and will surely leave a lasting sporting, social and business legacy for us all.”
