21 September 2018

Access to Public Services for Black Isle Communities

Mid Ross Community Partnership Meeting

Munlochy Village Hall          6.00 - 8.00             All welcome

Message from Bruce Morrison, Secretary of Ferintosh Community Council:

"FCC is forwarding here details to you of this particular meeting because it has been specifically set up to discuss an issue of great concern to Black Isle residents and especially FCC residents. The subject is poor access of our residents to services within which poor transport services figures heavily. Effective lobbying by Black Isle Cares in particular has led to the setting up of this meeting on the Black Isle. FCC will be represented at the meeting but it is open to all residents and the Community Partnership is the new legally set-up body to consider such local issues and find solutions.

"There is also a survey/questionnaire available to us all to provide views on all issues about which we are concerned."
