Dighty Connect - Dundee
Dighty Connect is a volunteer-led project working along the Dighty Burn in Dundee, Scotland, exploring ways to enhance the green spaces along the burn through a mixture of conservation and cultural activities.
The group was formed in 2013 out of a small environmental group in Broughty Ferry. The idea for Dighty Connect arose when the original group asked local communities it worked with what would make a good focus for a project.
Membership of the new group consists of people from the areas the DIghty passes through. People of all ages and abilities are involved, with an age range of 11 to 75!
Led entirely by volunteers, Dighty Connect runs activities ranging from creating amphibian habitats to outdoor art performances. These can be regular volunteer groups or they can be organised as one-off events. Most events take place at the Douglas Community Centre.
