Oldmeldrum welcome for funding of Meldrum Meg path.

The Oldmeldrum ‘Meldrum Meg’ path follows a lot of the former railway to Inverurie, providing a level way, easy for walking and cycling.

Paul Johnston, Oldmeldrum’s Democratic Independent and Green Group Councillor, has welcomed the funding boost for the Oldmeldrum Paths Group.  The group have announced they have won backing for their bid through Aberdeenshire Council for £100,000 of design and development costs from a central Scottish Government scheme.

“Along with their further £150,000 of funding for the first stage construction costs, that would mean a quarter million pound boost for our town in taking forward the cycle and walking link to Inverurie.”

“Sincere thanks are owed to the Oldmeldrum Paths Group for the work they have done. And they should be encouraged and supported for the next stage in this mammoth project.  It’s off to a good start – but they need our support a well.”
