Wildside Adventures Ltd has announced receipt of a National Lottery Heritage grant of £49,200 for the Kilsyth Village Workshop Heritage Project. Local people will be able to work with woodland and green woodwork specialists to create a resource and training facility – the “Village Workshop” – for the wider community. Participants including young people from Cumbernauld College and Kilsyth Kids Club, will learn a wide range of green woodworking skills, from the traditional to the specialist, and learn about the lives of wood colliers and charcoal burners once busy in the local woodlands.

The project wants to use local heritage as a catalyst for lots of different activities and engage children and young people in the natural heritage on their own doorstep.
