FVL LEADER held a launch event on 29th April in Callendar Youth Project attended by many community groups and businesses with inspiring speakers from LEADER funded projects in the previous Programme.  Attendees were welcomed by LAG Chair Peter Sunderland and Stirling Councillor Neil Benny with the Programme being officially launched by Bruce Crawford MSP.

Attendees were also able to sample food prepared locally by the young people working in Callendar Youth Project and receive tours of the LEADER funded hostel facilities upstairs.  Programme Co-ordinator Anne-Michelle rounded off the formal launch with details of how to apply and a question and answer session.

We look forward to working with communities and businesses across our area to develop and improve it.
