09 August 2020

Bruce Morrison, Secretary of Ferintosh Community Council has forwarded an important poster for parents of children who are going back to local schools this month.  There's a one off cash grant (as part of the local covid response) available to help with the costs of children going back to school with a closing date of the 31st August for any application.  Email links are below.

Important update 12 August

Becky Richmond, Chair of Ferintosh Community Council, writes

Unfortunately, due to high demand across the Black Isle and unforeseen circumstances with the funder,  Black Isle Partnership have asked us to suspend the scheme to new applicants at the moment.  They are seeking to resolve this, and will ensure that any family with an outstanding application is able to benefit.

However, as such we cannot accept any new applications from today onwards, for which we do apologise.


We are part of the rapidly expanding worldwide Transition Towns movement. The Black Isle is a peninsula of about 100 sq miles ENE of Inverness in Scotland, UK.
