Nairn community group supports individual projects as group events cancelled

26 April 2020

Nairn River Enterprise and Green Hive

In the context of plans for community action on the Black Isle in relation to the Coronavirus crisis, Martin Sherring has drawn attention to how this community group in Nairn is responding to the lockdown by distributing 'starter kits' for practical indoorand outdoor individual activities.  Martin writes

Here’s something from Nairn which seems relevant – a tactical change in the Green Hive’s activities, moving away from group events into supported individual activities. I think this is something that could be a real benefit in social distancing times, letting people do things individually but still feel part of a bigger network.
