The Scottish National Party's Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP, Member of the Scottish Parliament for Perthshire South & Kinross-shire has welcomed  the announcement today (Wednesday) that the Allorment Association of Crieff is one of 21 projects receiving a total of £2.9 million in support from the Climate Challenge Fund.

Ms Cunningham said: "Strathearn has done well so far out of the Climate Challenge Fund and I am delighted to see that continuing with £11,150 going to the Allotment Association of  Crieff to provide 30 new plots.

"I am a strong supporter of the allotments movement and it is great to see that there is the demand in Crieff to support this development.

"Growing some of your own food is healthier and cheaper and cuts down on your food miles significantly.  But also, simply getting outside on a regular basis to do a bit of work in the allotment, can itself be very good for your physical and mental wellbeing.

"I am sure that this award will be warmly welcomed locally and I have no doubt that the money will be put to very good use indeed."
