CROMARTY RISING LATEST
An update on Cromarty Rising's petition to Scottish Government regarding the Port Of Cromarty Firth and its relationship with local communities is available here.
'OIL RIGS – LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM' RESULTS
Following the request for resident opinions and comments in the August Newsletter, the C&DCC has received emails and letters from 26 different residents. The results were as follows –
‘LOVE THEM’ – 11.54% (3)
‘HATE THEM’ – 80.77% (21)
‘ON THE FENCE’ – 7.69% (2)
Some of these responses were very emotive and at their meeting on Monday 31st August, the C&DCC unanimously decided the following –
“Members therefore agreed the C&DCC would support action or comment necessary to oppose rig noise around Cromarty.”
It was also decided to keep separate our actions relating to the Cromarty Firth Port Authority’s potential application to make the Cromarty Firth a Free Trade Zone or Port. The C&DCC involvement in this process will be led by Kari and
“.. Members agreed KM can freely ask questions on behalf of the C&DCC to gather more details about the proposals and impacts on the local area.”

STAY AT HOME SUPPORT
The Cromarty & District Community Council helps families 'Stay at Home'.
With the help from the Covid-19 Resilience Funds of both the Black Isle Ward Discretionary Fund and Scottish and Southern Electricity Networks, we have been able to help families 'Stay at Home' by providing free delivery of shopping from the Stores.
As a result, 400 less visits have been made to the Stores, helping to protect both staff and Cromarty residents.
It is hoped that more funding will soon be secured to continue this project that is helping to save lives. In the meantime, many thanks to both SSEN and the BI Ward, for helping Cromarty and its residents fight this crisis.
EVEN OLDER POSTS...
Dear friends and neighbours - The Community Council is still working with various groups in Cromarty to help and protect the most vulnerable residents.
This continues to be an unprecedented situation. If you have any suggestions on what would be helpful please contact us at Cromartydistrictcc@gmail.com
We regret to announce that, owing to the current coronavirus pandemic, the weekly Tuesday Talks at Hugh Miller's have been suspended with immediate effect.
