Praise as Fife Coast & Countryside Trust announces successful year

Tuesday, March 15, 2011
Praise was given to Fife Coast & Countryside Trust at the Council's Housing & Communities Committee earlier today (Tuesday) when members were presented with the Trust's latest annual report.

The report, which covers 2009/10, highlights some major achievements of the Trust including ongoing work to extend the Fife Coastal Path, maintaining and improving the Lomond Hills Regional Park and delivering successful orchards and Red Squirrel projects.

Jim Hooton, Service Manager for Fife Council’s Parks & Countryside said: “This was a busy year for the Trust. A five-year agreement was set for them to deliver countryside services on behalf of Fife Council which saw 31 staff being transferred from the Council to the Trust.

“The new teams have succeeded in delivering a range of high quality services including over 150 days of free countryside education such as Eco Schools, Forest Schools and Adopt a Beach. The hard work and dedication to maintain our coastline has also not been overlooked – the Coastal Path was voted Best Coastal Path in Scotland and runner up in the UK by readers of 'Coast' magazine last February.”

The Trust’s Chairman Robert Balfour said “This was a particularly significant year as it was the first set of accounts that we have published since we took over responsibility for a range of countryside functions from Fife Council. I am therefore delighted to see that the first nine months of operations has produced excellent financial results along with the great work that our staff continue to deliver in the countryside of Fife”

Robert continued “These results show how we are able to deliver added value by generating additional funding of over £700,000. These funds have helped us to deliver some important activities such as our two Coastal Path extensions, a Dune restoration project in St Andrews and our Orchard and Red Squirrel projects”.
