New - Pizza and a chat about the Curly

A partnership event by the Gannochy Trust and greenspace scotland for young people who visit, live, work or play in the Gannochy neighbourhood.  If you are aged from 12-18, we would like to hear your ideas about how the Curly could be improved.  The Curly is at the bottom of the Gannochy estate on Annat Road.  In the past it has been both a Curling Pond and a Tennis Court and is currently used as a children's play area.

Come and join us on Thursday 14th June 2018 between 5.00pm-8.00pm at the Doo'cot Pavilion for some pizza and a chat about your ideas for changing the way the Curly looks or changing the way it is used.

If you are slightly older or younger than 12-18 years, but would like to come along, let us know and we will sort something out.

Please let us know you are coming (together with any dietary or access needs) by signing up here at www.tinyurl.com/thecurly or contact greenspace scotland by email or phone on info@greenspacescotland.org.uk or 07545 164359

28.03.2018 Funding Strategy

From November 2017 to February 2018, the Gannochy Trust carried out an evaluation of our current funding strategy (June 2015 to May 2018) with the aim of setting a new three year plan from 1 July 2018.   We commissioned Wren and Greyhound, a consultancy company, to help us to demonstrate the impact of our funding, identify the learning from each programme and to assess the programmes' processes and effectiveness.  The process took the form of desk research, a survey, individual interviews and focus groups.

We would like to thank the charities and individuals who took the time to help the Trust evaluate the impact of our current funding strategy.  The Gannochy Trustees had an opportunity to hear a sneak preview of some of your comments from Wren and Greyhound at their Away Day in February and they will be considering the full report at their Trustees Meeting on 29 March 2018.

We are already aware that the report contains a wealth of information which will take time to digest before we embark on the next three year plan.  The Trust has therefore decided to extend the current programme to 31 December 2018.  We have three grant-making meetings planned during that period, being 28th June, 4th October and 13th December.

We hope to announce the new three year funding strategy later in the year at an event which will be held in Perth in November 2018.  Please watch this space for more information in due course.
