Towards Transition Stirling -"Wood for All'

8th December

New CWA members Towards Transition Stirling are staging a launch event for the 'Wood for All' project in the town just as you go to press.



‘Wood for All’ aims to link woodland owners and communities to improve access, revive woodland skills and create a sustainable source of woodfuel in the Stirling Council administrative area . Following a successful application, the project received funding through the Climate Challenge Fund earlier this year and ‘Wood for All’ is now up and running.
The office was set-up in October, and to kick things off a launch event at the Albert Halls, Stirling on Saturday 8th December between 2pm to 4pm is planned. The afternoon is designed to be a consultation event, where views from communities and landowners are warmly welcomed to help us shape our plans for woodfuel and woodland skills in the Stirlingshire community.


The idea of facilitating a move toward better community involvement has struck a chord with other organisations, and with their help we have been able to start networking within the woodfuel community, attending meetings and also speaking at a recent Biomass Network East of Scotland event.


Other members of the team are busy helping assess the suitability of rural homes for biomass boilers through free surveys and will be holding local drop-in clinics at community halls across the region in the New Year.
