The Friends of Cumbernauld Community Park, whose aim it is to "develop and deliver a Community Park for the 21st century" will now use their grant success to run a consultation, with local groups and residents, to decide where in the area the money is needed.

Commenting, Alison Magee, Big Lottery Fund Scotland Chair, said: "It can often be challenging for groups to get their projects off the starting blocks but thanks to Investing in Ideas we can offer support at that early stage to help them establish if their project idea is feasible and will deliver change in the longer term. We wish all of the winning projects the greatest of success as they turn their project ideas into reality."

Friends of Cumbernauld Community Park will start their consultation in the late autumn and anyone who wants more information can visit their website.
