Cromarty Notices and Events
ROUND TRIP CROMARTY TO TAIN BY FERRY AND BUS
With the confusion about changes to the local bus services in April, you may have overlooked this new travel opportunity: a round trip from Cromarty to Tain via ferry to Nigg and onward by Stagecoach bus from Ferry Hotel (10.10am) to Tain. The return bus leaves Tain oustide the Post Office at 13.25 to link with the Cromarty ferry. It's a great bargain for those with bus passes!

CREATE YOUR OWN PIZZA
Cromarty Community Rowing Club are teaming up with Sutor Creek to create a Cromba Pizza. So, get your thinking caps on to think of a pizza. If you have any suggestions, give them to Wanda or Sutor Creek on a piece of paper with your suggestion and name.
LINKS BUS SHELTER OPPORTUNITY
As a result of buses repeatedly damaging the large wooden bus shelter we plan to replace it with a smaller standard alternative. Cromarty and District Community Council is looking for someone to take down the existing shelter, remove the wood and make good the site. As dismantling the shelter should produce a good quantity of seasoned wood for the dismantler's use the Community Council would like a financial contribution to offset some of the original cost of construction.
If you are interested please submit your offer, including an indication of when you would be able to carry out the work, in a sealed envelope marked Shelter Offer to Ms. R. Hogg, 1 Forsyth Place, Cromarty, by Sunday, 24 September 2017.
CROMARTY & DISTRICT COMMUNITY COUNCIL ON ELECTRIC CARS
Grant funding is now available for communities who endeavour to reduce their carbon footprint. We believe that the purchase of an electric vehicle, some electric bikes and the installation of an electric charging point would make a difference in Cromarty. The electric car could be used for hire on an hourly/daily basis but could also be used for delivering goods to people who need the service or for transporting people to hospital/dentist etc.
In order to apply for this grant funding we must carry out research and gather the views of the local community. We would be very grateful if you could click on the link below and answer the questions. It would also be helpful if you could share and encourage other locals to do the same.
This grand funding is a good opportunity for us to improve the services in the community so please help us with our research if you can. Thank you!
