Westmuir Community Development Trust (WCDT)
We aim to turn a small piece of unused and unlovely land in the centre of the village into a seating area, surrounded by a wildflower area with vegetable and flower planters.

About this cause
We're a group who wants to make an unused and neglected space in the centre of the village into a pleasant seating area, garden and wildflower area. Previously our voluntary group has worked together to create the community woodland on the edge of the village and looks after the village hall and website. All these spaces help to build and maintain a connected, healthy and mentally well community.
How this cause brings people in the community together
Currently Westmuir does not have an informal sociable seating area within the centre of the village (there is a stone circle and some benches in the community woodland but that is on the village edge). During the Covid crisis people stood outside the village shop to chat and connect but they couldn't sit in a socially distanced way. A relaxing sitting area/garden/pollinator space would be great.
