The information centre at Brough is in situ and updated regularly with information about the area. The maps of the Core Path network in Brough will be made available shortly.
The cafe at Brough will be open from 11th April. You can see the opening dates on our Facebook page.
Project for 2014 We will also be looking for some to assist with organising the duathalon in September 2014. The applicant will need a good working knowledge of event management organisation and preferably be a duathalete themselves. We are working with LSBU to bring students in to assist with this, but there is still time to apply.
All of the above projects will be discussed again at a Trustees' meeting on 4th April 2014. However, if you would like to express your interest, please contact us.
Working with the Highland Council to mark paths in the Brough area. The core path network will be marked shortly, followed by the non core path plan next spring.
The Trust has submitted the idea of developing Dunnet Head under the Call for Sites as advertised by the Council in August 2013. You can follow their blog here.
The Trust is delighted to be working with LSBU again. We have registered to mentor students from the University and also hope to work on a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with them. Research into rural economics is another topic we are working on and one of their students is building an interactive web site along the lines of the one for the South West Path for the burgeoning North Highland Way. This is a private venture and not connected to the proposed development group for the North Highland Way being put together by the Highland Council.
Corporate Services and the Ward Manager have been most helpful in assisting with looking into the activities of the Community Council, and in particular their non support of the Trust and deliberate attempts to undermine the Trust. They have also attempted to undermine the Company in its bid for the North Highland Way and refused to bring forward petitions for toilets at Dunnet Head and access to the eastern side of Dunnet Head. Unfortunately THC cannot force them to produce these documents, but we have approached the CEO of THC regarding the former. You can see his response on the news service.
There are minutes omitted from the Community Council web site and our representatives attended meetings in September and October and were ignored. There was, however, no quorate in the meeting of October 8th.
In addition, he has kindly sourced the accounts to March 2013 - download here
