HIGHLAND councillors in Caithness have handed out more than £1900 to four community groups to help with the community response to the Covid-19 crisis.
Members representing Thurso and Northwest Caithness agreed ward discretionary funding of £500 each to Castletown Community Council, Thurso Community Development Trust and £500 Thurso Community Café, as well as £410 to Thurso Youth Club towards their work in supporting the community during the pandemic.
Councillors representing the Wick and East Caithness ward agreed to give £325 to Helen Stirling Maps to produce a graphic featuring text, images and a map of the town centre to supplement the local project being undertaken by the charity organisation Sustrans.
In the months before the coronavirus emergency, staff from Sustrans had been holding consultation events to bring together ideas for town centre regeneration and had begun looking at potential design frameworks.
