Our 2017 project, “Improving Cumnock’s Environment” successfully delivered carbon savings through energy efficient kit laundering and a schoolchildren climate change awareness programme delivered by CJCE coaches in 5 local schools – Barshare, Greenmill, Netherthird, Logan and New Cumnock.
See Press Release for this new 2018 funding.
Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise is proud to announce the launch of Improving Cumnock’s Environment (I.C.E) at Townhead Community Sports Hub as part of the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund.
Our member clubs will be participating in a variety of activities to promote and encourage behaviour change with the end goal of reducing carbon emissions. These activities will involve a sports kit and boot recycling scheme, energy efficient bulk laundry system and an educational awareness programme within the 4 local primary schools. Through this we aim to bring all members of the local community together to join in the fight against climate change.
All at CJCE are delighted to get this project on the go and there is loads of work being carried out behind the scenes. Please look out for further updates on our forthcoming events and how YOU can get involved.
Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise reached an impressive milestone when they were awarded the prestigious Legacy Award from the Scottish Football Association.
The award is designed to support and recognise the work of clubs and teams who have a desire to be the very best they can be. It aims to support management in administration, planning and welfare in order to develop a strong organisational structure. The success of the award was down to several key areas which the panel recognised. The diversity in terms of the different community groups involved in the enterprise was a positive aspect of the application and something which is growing all the time. The Enterprise was also recognised for its investment in training of volunteers as well as the delivery of community projects such as the “Nock Tots” nursery programme.
Cumnock Juniors Community Enterprise youth football coaches have completed a 6 month development programme sponsored by the SFA and MARS. The Club Coach programme was led by Scott Guy, Club and Volunteer Development Officer who provided coach development based on the SFA recommended guidance to three selected lead coaches. The lead coaches will pass on their knowledge and skills to the teams at 4v4, 7v7 and 11v11 youth teams.
