Nairnshire Events

We set up our stall at the County Show in July and on Games Day. The weather was changeable, but good days had all the same. Lots of chats and we were delighted to greet many more younger people and families. This year we didn’t run a raffle but we did do a pebble painting competition which, given the tent blew away at the Show, attracted lots of joyful entries (we got the tent back up with much appreciated help from our neighbours). We were battened down more at the Games and were glad to offer people shelter during the…

We mean it. We want your views.

At this year’s County Agricultural show we put up our stand for the first time. We set out to get local people’s views on projects which could contribute to and benefit Nairn and its environment. It was a great day. The weather was kind (well, dryish), the stand looked great, the raffle was a success, and our clothes line for ideas filled up quickly….we’ve got loads of suggestions for projects that could get going pretty soon….and even better, lots of really good ideas for collaborations between us and other groups in the town. We have got longer term plans for quite expensive,…

Onwards and upwards

It’s been great to hear from so many people in support of our plan. There’s now 15 of you signed up as founder members of the Social Enterprise and we’ll be meeting next Tuesday to kick off a two or three week flurry of activity to get the Company limited by Guarantee and its bank account set up. We’re also going to be considering three options for premises and deciding on working groups to get some projects going.
