litter picking

A Grand Day

What a day – from Firhall Bridge to the Maggot, and also Lochloy Quarry….around 20 of us all told in both morning and afternoon sessions. Loads of soup, tea, coffee, cakes consumed by hungry litter pickers and some friendly banter. And such a beautiful blue sky day! Lots of bags of litter ready for the Council to pick up and some unusual items among them – an ironing board, bike, street sign and old garage door….and all manner of smaller items. Thanks to all for your efforts, to Ashers for bread and cakes and Highland Council for advice, equipment and…

Community Litter Pick tomorrow

Come and help clear litter from our riverside. Have a bite to eat, meet up, enjoy yourselves. Litter Pick starts tomorrow at 10 in the morning and again at 2 in the afternoon. Starting point is Riverside Cottage, the last house before Jubilee Bridge on the footpath from town to Boath Park. We’ve been provided with gloves, plastic bags and picker-uppers you can use, and we’ll organise removal of the full bags from the Cottage. A really worthwhile way to spend an hour so – come and join in.

A Grand Day Out!

Open to everyone –  a grand time to be had! Once you’ve done your bit we’ll be providing a welcome and soup, tea, coffee and biscuits (and maybe cake!). Clearing litter from the riverside is the task for the day, but the whole point is to get together and enjoy time out with other locals. And since we’ll be based from Riverside Cottage, it’s a chance to find out more about Nairn River Enterprise and what we might achieve in future. Not got all day? No bother! Just come along in the morning, or in the afternoon if that suits better….

A home for Nairn River Enterprise

One step closer to securing a base for our enterprise…we have agreed the key points of a proposed lease with the owner of a cottage near the river at King George V playing fields, in the form a Heads of Terms document. All that remains is conclusion of detailed discussions about the final content of the lease (a second draft), advice from respective lawyers and some further attention to the complexities of insurance. We’ll post pictures and more information as soon as we’re near sign-off. Meanwhile, if you’d like to learn more do get in touch, or better still, join up…
