Cara Modern Apprentice

Hi I’m Cara. I have been with the Community Greenspace Team since January as a Modern Apprentice. I am also studying part-time for a degree in Geography and Environmental Science and have a keen interest in the outdoors.

While working with the team I will be completing a Business and Administration Modern Apprenticeship, and mainly working on Park Events and Football. I am also keen to be involved with the community and helping the Greenspace Rangers.

So far I have processed many event applications, all happening in parks throughout Perth and Kinross, I have been involved in site meetings and have had the opportunity to drive an electric car!

I have also been out of the office and helped the greenspace rangers and volunteer groups, by putting posters up, updating signs and tree planting.

I am looking forward to working with the team more and gaining valuable skills and knowledge of Greenspaces throughout Perth and Kinross.

PKC Participatory Budgeting

Have you heard about Participatory Budgeting?  Also known as PB ….

It enables residents to decide how public money should be spent in their communities.  The Scottish Government supports PB as a way of empowering communities and is funding local projects.

Please follow the link below for information on forthcoming events in Perth and Kinross and see how you can access some of this funding.

I hope this helps support the fantastic work that you all do.
