200 bags and counting!

Think Green. Think saving the environment. Think Hive. Think of busy bees. Put them together and you get Green Hive. Put a group of busy bees together on a Saturday morning at the Green Hive hub at the Links Studios on Grant Street and soon you will have a Bumblebag.  A small group of volunteers meet once a month to sew Bumblebags which are environmentally friendly in addition to being attractive and each one unique. The fruits of the labours can be seen in the window of Clarks of Nairn furniture shop or on display in Nairn Library several times…

Queens Park Project

Help design our Queens Park community project

Green Hive are building a new project and we need your help. If you live in Queens Park tell us what you think by completing a survey available from the Green Hive Hub, Nairn Citizens Advice Bureau, or online here. So far we have done litter picks, handy neighbour household DIY and a pop-up up-cycling stall. What would you like to see Green Hive do next in Queens Park? How would you improve your environment? Get involved with planning a volunteer activity or public event right on your doorstep!
