Community day to celebrate low carbon travel investment in Speyside
A COMMUNITY event celebrating investment in a low carbon in Speyside takes places next weekend.
Moray Council is hosting the event in Alice Littler Park in Aberlour on Sunday 16 June from 12-4pm. Attending will be Home Energy Scotland, Sustrans, HiTrans, Outfit Moray, Living Streets, Moray Carshare and Dicksons of Inverness, who’ll be showcasing active and sustainable travel initiatives in the area.
Residents and visitors will have the chance to try out electric bikes and cars, and a fun range of other bikes. Hot drinks, ice cream and other refreshments will be available.
It forms part of the £810,000 grant awarded to Moray Council by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge project, and Transport Scotland, to encourage Speyside communities to explore a range of options for changing to low carbon and active travel modes for everyday journeys.
Convener of Moray Council, Cllr Shona Morrison, is looking forward to attending the event.
“Speyside has welcomed significant investment in low carbon travel initiatives, which will help transform the way people travel in the area. I’m interested to hear from residents and visitors alike how they’re embracing these opportunities.”
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
