Black Isle Partnership sixth bulletin out now

08 October 2020

Community Resilience Coordinator and bulletin editor Asia Cielecka writes

September was our busy month. We were closing of our Supporting Communities work, and in the last days we focused on Community Larders being established in Monlochy, Culbokie, North Kessock, Avoch and Fortrose. Many of us have families, to whom the process of return to schools and universities has posed new challenges. A natural flow of seasons brings not only the autumnal harvest from the fields, but also an increasing number of patients falling prey to viruses, including COVID. This, combined with weakened economy and winter days on the horizon can result in a gloomy attitude. Luckily we have the Bulletin to save us from it!

The bulletin also includes an update by Asia on the Supporting Communities Project funded by HIE, links to the latest pandemic-related guidance, and an article on 'Preparing for the Long Haul'  by Councillor Gordon Adam.
