Summer Beach and River Clean-up

So you’ll remember the beach clean last November and the Art is Rubbish project & exhibition that followed in January? Well, we’ve teamed up with the Sailing Club and WASPs artists again and are holding another Clean-up this Sunday, 2nd July, starting from the Sailing Club at 10.30 am and finishing around 12.30. It’s a great family outing, exploring, discovering and doing a good job for the wildlife and critters along our shore and riverside. We’ll provide soup and tray bakes between 12.30 and 1.30 – by all means bring your own bites too. We’ll also provide bin bags for…

Community Orchard

We had a great response to our spot poll last month. Seems there’s quite a few out there interested in doing stuff to help get the orchard set up. You’ll maybe know that we received £230 from Highland Council to purchase trees. We’ve just heard that the Pebble Trust is to  make a bigger grant which will cover all the costs necessary to ensure the trees and surrounds are given the best possible start. Keep an eye on this page and our Facebook page in the coming weeks to find out more about the chances of volunteering and getting involved.

Project Work contract

We had 4 really good submissions for this contract. We’re delighted to have contracted Kirsty Ellen, local lass made good, to help us get set up at the Links Studios, recruit more members and get some more projects going. Kirsty has a wealth of experience in community development and is a committed up cycler! She’ll be starting with us in the middle of June, so watch out for more from her as she gets going.
