Where Can The Money Go? The Villages


The projects in this area are:


1st Bridge of Weir Scout Group

Archery for All - £1808

Archery for All in Scouting aims to teach young people the skills of archery so that they gain all the benefits, fun, and challenges the sport has to offer. Archery is a sport which is open to all, can be done all year round and the equipment will be used for many years benefiting hundreds of young people.


1st Lochwinnoch Boys Brigade

Protect our existing offering to boys - £2175

We no longer have the accommodation that was available to us at no cost.  The covid pandemic meant that our meetings were carried out using zoom. This meant that the lack of accommodation did not affect us and whilst many of our members continued to ‘attend’ our meetings by this method not all were able to do so.  Now that we are able to meet face to face again, we are having to source new accommodation and incur the costs involved in this.


Friends of Howwood Park

Howwood Park Football Pitch Training and Event Equipment - £2645

Our project is to returf the worn goal mouths at Howwood Park and to provide equipment to Johnstone Burgh 2007's football team to assist with training, football matches, and fundraising events.


Houston 1st Girls' Brigade

Houston 1st Girls' Brigade STEM Project - £1364.91

Houston 1st Girls’ Brigade STEM Project will enable learning through the purchase of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics resources and equipment together with a visit to Glasgow Science Centre & Planetarium. The Project will serve as a platform to support the advancement of the girls in STEM education and careers, developing life & problem-solving skills, increase critical thinking and science literacy whilst reducing the gender gap.


Lochwinnoch Community Development Trust

Lochwinnoch Play Park Teen Facilities - £2700

Lochwinnoch doesn’t have a lot of places for young people to hang out: behind the library, at the cross, or in the park, especially when it rains, and it does all the time!

We are really happy for the wee ones & adults getting £150,000 spent on new stuff in the park, but we want something for us too. We would love outdoor gym equipment and a sheltered space to meet up with our friends.  Thanks for voting for us.


Loud n Proud

Music Video Workshops - £2700

There are very few opportunities for young people to learn about making a professional-level music video. This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how it all works. It doesn't stop there. The young people attending the course can go on and make videos in any subject they choose. Being part of the project may inspire them to attend a film-making course at College or University.



Cultural Fusion - £2700

Help young people from the School of African Cultures create a shared cultural heritage to help them bond with members of the wider community and create a sense of belonging through a project that researches the history of local and African print and borrows inspiration from other cultures to create a contemporary print.



Inspiring Connections - £2700

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 and the Duke of Edinburgh award.


Scotland Youth International Flyfishing Team

Scotland Youth International Flyfishing Team - £2700

Our aim is to encourage and develop the skills of the youths in the great outdoors promoting positive mental health. We train as a team and regularly hold team-building events to encourage the boys and girls to bond and work together. Our volunteers have a wealth of information and many have competed at International and Commonwealth levels and are keen to pass on their skills and knowledge to the future generation of our sport.
