Thanks to You for 25 Years

The 19th November 2019 saw the 25th Birthday of the National Lottery and its funding of community projects such as us. The quiz this year was slightly different to the last.

Scottish Wildlife Trust Staff Conference 2019

This month we went to join colleagues at the Scottish Wildlife Trust Staff conference in Seamill, Ayrshire.

Assynt Games 2019

As always, this year’s Assynt games was fantastic, all be it a little damp! But many of you didn’t let the rain stop the fun.

Saturday saw Laura and Vickii return to the Coigach Gathering for another year. A fun filled day packed with lots of scheduled activities and amazing food.

CALLP Community Survey – we need your input!

As we’re now at the half way stage of the Coigach & Assynt Living Landscape Partnership Scheme it’s time to reflect on what we’ve achieved so far and what we still have to achieve by the end of the project late in 2021.

At the halfway point

We’re now halfway through our Landscape Partnership Scheme (where has the time gone???) so it’s time for our mid-scheme evaluation. This work, conducted on our behalf by Simon Lees of Countryside Training Partnership, will identify where we’ve been successful, what challenges there have been, and opportunities for us to make the most of the next two and a half years

Spring Clean Take 2: April Volunteer Day

As I arrived on site the heavens opened, ‘another wet beach clean’ I thought. I was wrong. By 11am the sun pushed through as volunteers started to arrive.
