Erskine community fireworks display - £2700
Whether you are from Erskine itself or the surrounding villages there is one thing you look forward to after every year and that it is the Erskine fireworks show. A night filled with wonder and awe, with beautiful colours and loud bangs, with the best local food and traybakes around, it is truly a great night. Bring your family and friends to come and join us at Erskine's fireworks display and spend the whole year waiting for the next.

Inspiring Connections - £2500
A great opportunity to remove barriers to awareness, participation, engagement, employment and up-skilling for young people and families from diverse ethnic communities particularly those from African backgrounds in and around Renfrewshire by improving access and support to information and opportunities on modern apprenticeship opportunities to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh award.
Renfrew Town Sea Scouts
Project young leader - £2700
Renfrew Town Sea Scouts offer kayaking and sailing activities. We do this at minimal cost and supply all members with safety equipment. As part of our development, we are training all of our young leaders (18 - 25) in kayaking, dinghy instructing and safety boating. This will allow us to train future generations of 10-16-year-old scouts and explorers in house and at minimal cost whilst maintaining our investment in community activities.
