Cromarty Notices and Events
NEW (OLD) THRIFT SHOP OPENING
Cromarty's latest addition to retail therapy is the 'pop-up' thrift shop at the Old Dairy on the High Street. All the money made from selling re-cycled items goes to the Cromarty Community Development Trust. So as well as the chance of picking up a bargain and saving the environment from what might otherwise have gone to landfill, you could also be contributing to good causes in the town. First opening Saturday 20th April - 11.00-16.00
IT'S TATTIE TIME
Following TBI's Potato Day at North Kessock Hall on 2nd March, Cromarty's market on the 9th will have an allocation of seed potatoes as available. 15p per tuber. Please bring your own bags.
