Fledgling community group set their priorities for Lossiemouth

Trust seeking help in forming priorities for Lossiemouth

People in Lossiemouth are being urged to make their feelings known on what is required to improve existing facilities and introduce new ones in the community.

The challenge is being made by the recently formed Lossiemouth Community Development Trust (LCDT), who held a successful event in the Lossiemouth Town Hall last month where members of the community learned more about their aims and objectives.

Development of historical walks, floodlit playing fields and improved community communications has been high on the list of priorities already suggested, alongside beach clean-ups, pop-up shops and greater action on dog fouling.

LCDT chair Donna Milne said: “At our Town Hall event many people came forward and demonstrated a great deal of interest in what we were trying to achieve, with a number of advance copies of our development plan for Lossiemouth sparking ideas on priority action areas for Lossiemouth.

“We will soon be distributing final copies of the plan to every home in Lossiemouth – but before we do that we would like to hear from more people in the town on what where they believe our priorities should be.”

The LCDT have produced an online survey  and is urging Lossiemouth residents to take a few minutes to complete that.

Meanwhile the Trust are seeking volunteers to help water flower beds in the town.

LCDT vice-chairman Mike Mulholland said: “We have obtained special water bowsers that would allow us to easily water the plants that have now been provided along the esplanade and in James Square.

“What we now require is one or two volunteers who can regularly water the flowers throughout the summer months.”

Anyone who wishes to assist is asked to contact Mike by email to gmmulholland@aol.com
