Pass it on Week 2020 - to 15 March

07 March 2020

Pass it on Week is Scotland's annual celebration of re-use - whether it's swapping, donating, sharing or repairing to help make things last!  The next Pass it on Week will be held from 7-15 March 2020 and the theme will be "The Great Toy Rescue"

In 2019 we had over 500 events registered around Scotland so thank you to everyone who got involved.  Let's see if we can beat that in 2020.  We will shortly be updating our ideas guide and resources to help you get involved in Pass it on Week 2020.

Check out the Pass it on website for a huge amount of information and links on all aspects of re-using, repairing, sharing, exchanging and donating.

TBI Potato Day 2020

07 March 2020


Starts: 11:00
Ends: 15:00

2020 Potato Day - Saturday 7 March - is only a few days away, and preparations are almost complete.  Potatoes are ordered, and varieties and descriptive lists, and a simple growing guide, are available to download (see links below) so you can start planning what you'd like to come and buy on the day.   Leftovers from the day will then go round the BI markets in March for sale also.                

But Tattie Day can't happen without the large group of volunteers on the day who help to make it all as memorable and enjoyable as it has become. 

So if you would be able to lend a hand on the day please email Julie Gibson at  gibsonjulie28@yahoo.co.uk

Fortrose Community Market

07 March 2020


Starts: 10:00
Ends: 12:30

Fortrose Academy Theatre      10.00 - 12.30

The Fortrose community market takes place on the first Saturday of each month at the theatre in Fortrose Academy next to the library.  It is primarily a food market and there is usually a good selection of pork, venison and lamb, fresh seasonal vegetables, eggs, hand made bread (including gluten free), hand crafted patisserie and chocolates as well as dried goods, vegan cheese, vegan fudge, jams, marmalades, teas and plants.

The market has expanded over the last six months and there are around 20 to 25 stalls.  There are a range of crafters who also attend on a rotational basis and you will find local wood workers and jewellers, artists, felters, glass and candle makers together with social and community groups.  The market's aim is to promote local produce and to support Black Isle businesses. 

March / April   2020      New Market organiser

Claire Devine has been appointed as market organiser to succeed Charlie Leggatt.  Claire works for Highland Council in their waste department, promoting waste reduction and recycling amongst other things, and is a former editor of Chatterbox.  She and Charlie will both be at the 7 March market, and Claire will take over from April.

The email contact address is unchanged.
