SGN INVESTMENT IN WINDYGATES
I welcome SGN’s plans to invest in biodiversity improvement in Windygates and was excited to hear about investment in the biodiversity site, as well as funding for green projects in the local area when I met with local leads this week.
SGN are selecting 142 sites across Scotland for biodiversity improvements and the Windygates site is the first to be developed, with work starting shortly on a nature walk and wildlife meadow. Funding has been provided to local primary schools for projects such as building bird boxes to encourage wildlife to flourish.
I’ve always had an interest in nature and wildlife so am excited to hear about SGN’s investment in the Windygates site and with local community groups. Work on the site is still in the early stages but I’m looking forward to visiting once it is more developed – I might even need my wellies and binoculars!
Between the biodiversity improvements and the H100 project, the world-first hydrogen network in Buckhaven and Methil that will bring renewable hydrogen into 300 homes over the next two years, it’s great to see SGN investing in Fife in such a significant way.
Margaret Hamilton, SGN Stakeholder and Community Manager commented: “SGN is delighted to be improving biodiversity at our Windygates site. We’re working closely with the Kennoway Men’s Shed and both Kennoway & Balcurvie Primary schools to help wildlife thrive by making bird and bat boxes, and bug hotels which will help attract different species of insects.”
