The REW DT Directors and staff are thrilled to hear that they have been successful in their application and will received £260,000 for the purchase of land at Trumland estate.

The project will create two employment opportunities, a Project Office and a Ranger post. The project will create environmentally safe accessible walkways to allow access to the new viewing points and picnic areas, the provision of public toilets at Saviskaill beach and the possibility of using the land to enhance digital connectivity.

Ellie Roberts has been appointed as the Project Officer.  One of her main roles is to help facilitate the Trumland Land purchase and then to develop, and find funding for, the related projects as voted for in the last community survey.  The purchase process is extremely complex and is likely to take some months yet so, meantime, Rachael has been researching the possibilities for creating access paths to viewing points at the top of Kierfea and nearby the big community turbine at Kingarly.

The Ranger post will be advertised later in the year and will involve looking at the control of invasive species and the promotion of the land and everything it has to offer.
