Communities grant for dance sessions

MSP FOR Angus South Graeme Dey has welcomed the distribution of awards totalling £5,585 across his constituency as part of the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme.

One of the recipients was Timmergreens Primary School which received a £1,980 award to engage dance instructors to deliver blocks of dance sessions to the nurseries and infant classes in all primary schools in Arbroath.

This grant will fund 321 Go Dance DVDs and coaching sessions.
