“Well done to Fair City Rollers, Blairgowrie New Tennis Club and 3rd Perthshire Scone Scout Group who all successfully secured a significant cash boost from the Big Lottery Fund’s 2014 Communities programme.
“This additional funding will allow provision of new equipment and greater participation in sport which is a really positive outcome for these three groups and their Perthshire North communities.”
Mr Wishart added:
“This is excellent news for these local groups and I congratulate everyone involved in securing the funding.
“It is great to see the ongoing contribution from the Commonwealth Games benefiting grassroots involvement in a wide range of sports and activities.”
